Abstract

We report a novel method to obtain stable second order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties in polymeric thin films. Photocross-linking between the NLO active molecules and a photoreactive polymer is achieved by UV irradiation subsequent to poling. The thin film exhibits a nonlinear coefficient d33of 16.5 pm/V at a doping level of 20% by weight of NLO active molecules and possesses quite stable second order nonlinear optical properties
