Abstract

A new set of side-chain non-linear optical copolymers containing two different amounts of 2-methyl-4-nitroaniline (MNA) and disperse red 1 (DR1) chromophores are reported. From this set of copolymers, it is easy to see how to optimize such key properties as glass transition temperature, maximum absorption wavelength and second harmonic signal, d33. The composition dependence of these properties is seen to vary linearly with MNA and DR1 content.
