Abstract : Second-order nonlinear optical polymeric films including alternating monomolecular layers of two head-to-head mainchain amphophilic chromophoric polymers one polymer having the electron donating end of the chromophore attached to hydrophilic groups and the other polymer having the electron donating end of the chromophore attached to hydrophobic groups and methods of fabricating the films for use in optonics.
