Synthesis and Characterization of Linear Polymers for Non-Linear Optics through Click Chemistry Route
Click chemistry is used for synthesizing polymers for second order NLO study. The molecular weights found by gel-permeation chromatography (GPC), were in the range of 7000-55000 g/mol. Differential scanning calorimetry shows glass transition temperature (Tg) above 120 oC. From electronic spectra order parameter of the poled films were calculated to be 0.1-0.5. The change in surface morphology after poling was checked by atomic force microscopy. By using a pulsed Nd:YAG laser (1064nm), the second harmonic generation (SHG) intensity was measured. The SHG intensity was also studied as a function of against temperature and time respectively.
