Abstract

The photodegradation properties of six electro-optic chromophores in guest-host polymer formats were measured as a function of wavelength throughout the visible and up to 1.3 mum in the near infrared. The chromophore structure was varied to provide insight into its relationship with photostability. (C) 2003 American Institute of Physics.
