Poly (arylene ether)s can be designed to be amorphous, optically clear materials with excellent hydrolytic and thermal stability as well as good electrical, Mechanical and fire resistant properties. As a result, the use of these macromolecules in second order nonlinear optical (NLO) applications are being investigated. Typically, polymeric systems with doped chromophores result in a signigicant decrease in Tg. Methods were investigated to functionalize the polymer backbone with NLO chromophores, resulting in increased Tg.
