Paper Abstract

The polydiacetylenes, which are a class of fully ordered polymeric single crystals, are very attractive candidates for nonlinear optical applications and devices. The growth techniques, nonlinear optical measurements and possible applications of these materials are discussed. Recent results on the first picosecond time resolved measurement of the third order nonlinear optical susceptibility are presented.
