Paper Abstract

Polyacetylene films were used to generate optical third harmonics and other nonlinear optical effects. The source was a Nd-YAG pulsed laser operating at 1.06 microns. The poly-acetylene films were prepared using the Shirakawa synthesis procedure. The films were free standing, one micron to 100 microns in thickness. Nonlinear optical effects were observed using non-Bragg angle scattering. The films were mounted in a vacuum tight sample holder, nevertheless, the measurements resulted in heat damage to the films.
