Paper Abstract

Electrooptical and electromechanical effects of a PNA substituted rigid rod-like polymer have been studied experimentally. Modulated attenuated reflection spectra show a strong piezoelectric contribution to the overall field induced response. The piezoelectric coefficient dP as determined independently by a Nomarski interferometer was found to be comparable in size to the electronic electrooptical coefficient (chi) (2)zzz. This behavior is explained by the particular electronic configuration of the PNA chromophores.
