Nanostructured Molecular Materials for Device-Quality, Highly Efficient Electrooptic Poled Polymers


  • Supported by a grant from the Henri Gutwirth fund for research.


Moieties that can be cross-linked appear to be the necessary feature of dendrimers that can be used to make poled polymers displaying high chromophore density, excellent electrooptic properties, and good thermal and temporal stability. Such materials could find use in optical telecommunications and public networking.
