Abstract

We have developed several classes of thermally stable nonlinear optical chromophores based on the combination of efficient thiophene conjugating units and novel electron-donating and electron-accepting functional groups. The incorporation of these chromophores into high temperature polymers produces high linear electro-optic coefficients and long-term thermal stability at elevated temperatures. Active Mach-Zehnder interferometers with a Vπ phase shift of 50 volts and low attenuation (<2 dB/cm) were fabricated. Thermal baking of the poled device demonstrated no change in activity after 30 minutes at 230°C.
