Organic and polymeric materials have emerged in recent years as candidates for advanced device and systems applications. This interest has arisen from the promise of extraordinary optical, structural, and mechanical properties of certain organic materials, and from the fundamental success of molecular design performed to create new materials.

Our approach to the problem is to develop an understanding of the molecular basis of non-linear optical activity, incorporate the most promising candidates into tractable polymers, and evaluate these materials in device format. This paper will review some of the recent developments in the NLO materials effort at Hoechst Celanese.
