Abstract:

The objective of this program is the training of students in research in advanced organic and polymeric materials for optical devices based on both linear and nonlinear processes. Nonlinear processes might be useful in technologies such as optical limiting and relevant materials would include polydiacetylenes and other conjugated polymers. A new thermally reactive diacetylene monomer, 1,6-bis-N-n-propyl-N-,P-TRICYANO-VINYLPHENYLamino-2,4-hexadiyne has been synthesized and characterized. Crystal growth experiments are in progress.
