Abstract:

The Organic Thin Films for Photonics Applications Topical Meeting provided an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of new and previously unpublished results on advanced organic thin films materials with potential applications for photonics. Materials synthesis, fabrication, and processing were covered in depth and related to chemical, physical and optical properties. Theoretical and experimental studies regarding these properties were described. Particular emphasis was give to materials exhibiting electroluminescence electrically andor optically controlled optical functions second-order, third-order, and photorefractive nonlinear optical properties and other properties suitable for applications in optics. Both active and passive photonic device applications were discussed with a focus on the relationship between device performance and materials properties.
