Abstract : Poled polymer films with nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores doped or covalently attached to the polymer chain have been the subject of recent study. These materials have potential as electro-optic switching/modulator and second harmonic generator (SHG). Their usefulness is determined by their temporal stability and other physical and mechanical properties. For NLO processes, such as SHG, it is essential to achieve noncentrosymmetric molecular assemblies. In addition the material must provide ease of processability.
