Paper Abstract

The synthesis and preliminary characterization of new polypeptide-bound chromophores are reported. These polymers were made for the purpose of assembling (beta) -sheets at an air- water surface, and processing them into nonlinear optical films by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) deposition. These films should be amenable to integration on semiconductor wafers, e.g., as active optical waveguides for phase shifting.
