Paper Abstract

This paper is a review of current developments in new optical materials based on a survey of the recent literature. Rapid advances are taking place in the fields of passive and active optical materials. Among the former are new optical fibers and refractive materials suitable for excimer lasers. Among the latter are electrooptic crystals of many varieties including liquid crystals and molecular non-linear materials. Among the key application areas are optical fibers waveguides, optical storage, and optical data processing devices. Several examples of each of these new areas will be mentioned in the paper.
