Paper Abstract

Drawing on the success of the DH6-polycarbonate system, new derivatives based on the DH bridge structure, bis-1,2-(dibutoxythiophene)vinylene have been synthesized and tested. The property-structure function has been investigated, showing that location of the trifluorovinylether (TFVE) crosslinker on the chromophore has an impact on electro-optic (EO) activity as well as stability. A crosslinked polymer, IMOH_PCT-R and a linear high glass transition (Tg) analog, IMOH_HT, in combination with various DH derivatives are discussed. The temporal stability data of these systems show comparable results for both crosslinked and linear polymers, furthering the argument that the Tg of the EO material is the critical parameter in determining device lifetime.
