Paper Abstract

Organic polymers are recently becoming important for harmonic generation, Raman scattering, down conversion and so on. 1) Theirpiezo- and pyroelectric properties have been extensively studied, though, their nonlinear behaviorpckl as second harmonic generation(SHG) has been li4 mited only to PVDF polymer by McFee and Bergman et al z,3) and VDF/TrFE copolymer by one of the authors.) In the present paper we shall report new SHG observation in vinylidene fluoride/tetra-fluoroethylene(VDF(TeFE)copolymer using a pulsed Nd : YAG laser, in comparison with that of VDF/TrFE copolymer. Additionally, the poling-field dependence on the SHG output power and its control by dc electric field will be also experimentally demonstrated with some discussions. 11
