Abstract : Research carried out under the present grant has during the past year been directed to four principal areas: (a) Ferroelectric Films; (b) Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials (POLYCERAMS); (c) Nonlinear Optic Dyes in POLYCERAM Hosts; and (d) Gradient Refractive Index Lenses. In all cases, the research was based upon developing novel combinations of chemistry and processing to produce novel materials and structures with exceptional properties and characteristics. Also carried out have been systematic investigations of important phenomena and modeling of observed behavior. (MM)
