The large electro-optic coefficients of the ionic crystal DAST...
-dimethylaminostyryl)-1-methylpyridinium tosylate) can only be fully exploited with channel optical waveguides, made in part of transparent polymers to cope with DAST’s large optical loss. Two fabrication methods, dry-etching and photo-bleaching are examined. (T. Kaino et al., September 16, Adv. Funct. Mater. 2002
