Abstract

Recent use of quantum mechanics to guide the improvement of molecular hyperpolarizability and the use of statistical mechanical analysis of the effects of intermolecular electrostatic interactions to improve the acentric ordering of organic chromophores has led to the realization of electro-optic coefficients, r 33, greater than 100 pm/V (at telecommunication wavelengths). This material design and development paradigm is likely to lead to further improvement in electro-optic activity, which will in turn facilitate the development of a variety of electro-optic devices with drive (V π) voltage requirements of less than one volt. The utility of organic electro-optic materials for development of high bandwidth devices is now well documented. What is less obvious is the utility of organic electro-optic materials for the fabrication of complex (including conformal, flexible, and three-dimensional) device structures. In this communication, we review recent improvements in electro-optic activity; thermal and photochemical stability; and processability of organic electro-optic materials and the use of these materials to fabricate conformal and flexible electro-optic devices and devices based upon single and multiple coupled ring microresonators.
