Ring-opening metathesis polymerization of mono-substituted cyclooctatetraenes is used to form optical-quality films of polyacetylenes with large χ(3) of up to 2.1 × 10−10 esu in the near-infrared (1300–1550 nm). Thick films of such materials provide large diffraction efficiencies in ultrafast image-correlation applications.
