The Electro‐Optic Response of a Zwitterionic Non‐linear Optical (NLO) Material
- Conference date: 8–12 February 2009
- Location: Dunedin (New Zealand)
Measurements of the electro‐optic coefficient, of a zwitterionic organic chromophore are reported. Amorphous polycarbonate and chromophore were mixed and spin‐processed to obtain host‐guest polymer thin films for measurement with a Teng‐Man modulation eillipsometer. After poling, the films exhibited an of 100 pm/V at a measurement wavelength of 1310 nm, around three times greater than that of crystalline Given this chromophore’s high figure of merit a high is expected, although the electro‐optic response in the poled polymer films decayed rapidly over several days.
