Abstract : A new polymer p-NAn-PVA illustrated was developed by N. Ogata for implementing second-order nonlinear-optic (NLO) devices. p-NA (p-Nitroaniline) is introduced as side-chain to PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) main-chain via acetal-linkage, and second-order NLO effects emerge by electric-field induced side-chain alignment (poling). This polymer has some attractive features besides fabrication easiness.
