Abstract : The structural relaxation studies show strong promise, and we have preliminary results indicating that we will be able to PREDICT the temporal stability of chromophore orientation in polymer hosts. Enhanced temporal stability achieved in some systems, a deeper understanding of the physics influencing polymer relaxations, and a variety of novel materials have been tested tested. Even more new materials look promising, and many industrial and academic researchers have agreed to help synthesize some of the more complicated, novel materials.
