Abstract:

During the period of this contract, great progress has been made in new electro-optic polymers and in high speed infrared modulators using these polymers. There have been recent significant advances in the synthesis of molecules with large optical nonlinearity which have been sterically designed to prevent large dipole-dipole interactions between the molecules from preventing the alignment of the molecules during electric field poling.
