Paper Abstract

We present a procedure for trivially preparing soluble, spinnable phthalocyanine plastics and elastomers containing high concentrations of silicon phthalocyanine incorporated as a copolymer. Polymers prepared by this method can easily be fashioned as thin films for optoelectronic applications. We present a visible broad band quadratic electroabsorption measurement on one such thin film, providing the real and imaginary components of (gamma) as well as the figure of merit Re[(gamma) ]/Im[(alpha) ].
