The Fourth OGAMM Meeting was held at the Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley in Yorkshire, England from 19 to 22 August 1991. The OGAMM program is a highly collaborative multidisciplinary effort designed to provide the technology base needed for the development of the highly sophisticated devices needed for advanced SDI systems. Because these devices are generally intended for imaging, detecting, photonics, tracking, and communications systems, the research focuses on material concepts combining various nonlinear optical, electrical, magnetic, thermal and mechanical functions. In the past year excellent progress has been made in understanding the influence of molecular structure and surface processes on these properties in a wide range of materials, including impregnated gel silica, multifunctional polymers, polymer blends, and polymer - glass composites. New device concepts and new insights into the role of local order on material processing and properties have also emerged. Greater control of material quality and the ability to predictably combine different functional groups to make truly multifunctional materials were identified as key program objectives at last years OGAMM meeting. This year it is clear they have been achieved.
