Abstract : This project focused most of its efforts in two major strategic families of materials: nonlinear optical and dielectric. The selection of candidate materials and the proposed studies on them were made very carefully taking into account their potential impact on technologically important devices. Additionally, we have selected materials which have shown promise in various important devices but still have room to be improved upon either synthesis or understanding. The following flow chart summarizes the direction of our efforts. Also the present project has given us the opportunities to establish facilities to produce some of these materials at the UPR. This report covers the studies on materials which either are produced at some active external collaborative facility or produced at the developing materials facilities at UPR.
