Paper Abstract

Organics have emerged as one of the most rapidly developing research areas for improved electro-optical materials. Many reviews have been written on this subject following progress from the early physical measurements from single crystals through the subsequent creation of linear electro-optical polymers. Applications of polymers have produced promising results and extensive development activities are in progress at industrial and academic laboratories to demonstrate device applications. Most of this activity concerns waveguide devices which are very appropriate device structures for the new E/O polymers. More complex devices such as spatial light modulators have not yet been developed but are an attractive application area. The purpose of this paper is to introduce organic nonlinear optical polymers to the spatial light modulator community and highlight some of the advantages and shortcomings of the current materials in this device format.
