Paper Abstract

Organic and polymeric materials have emerged in recent years as promising candidates for advanced device and system applications. This is due in large part to their extraordinary optical, structural and mechanical properties and from the success of molecular design in creating new kinds of materials and responses. Additionally, polymers can be fabricated into a wide range of structural shapes and sizes (fibers, films, molded parts), and possess large nonresonant nonlinearities and low dielectric constants. This unique combination of properties, coupled with the ability to alter the microscopic structure and the macroscopic orientation to produce entirely new materials, makes polymers prime candidates for inclusion in research programs addressing non linear devices.
