Paper Title:
High Electro-Optic Coefficient in Organic NLO Polymers: Poling and Study of the Relaxation Process
  Abstract

We report a high electo-optic coefficient (r33) of 175 pm/V in guest-host polymer films made by mixing amorphous polycarbonate with the chromophore, PYR-3 that was synthesized by our team. We have previously shown that PYR-3 has a large 2nd order nonlinear optical figure of merit. The measured r33 is five times larger than that of conventional inorganic materials such as lithium niobate. The decay of r33 with time has been studied for more than 1000 hours at room temperature and ambient atmosphere, and we find that the r33 value gradually reduced to a stable value of 34 pm/V after 40 days.
