Abstract:

This invention relates to acrylic polymers and more specifically to polyacrylamides and polyacrylates such as poly2-N-2-methyl-5-nitrophenylaminoethyl acrylate and polyN-2-methyl-4-nitrophenylacrylamide. These acrylic polymers are particularly useful as nonlinear optical components in various electrical devices for processing optical signals including interferometors, optical switches, optical amplifiers, generators, computational devices and the like.
