Abstract

Modal dispersion phase-matched second harmonic generation is demonstrated in new poled polymer waveguide geometries with a nonlinear optical core consisting of two side-chain polymers with different glass transition temperatures. After poling above and between the respective glass transitions, the sign of the nonlinear optical coefficient is reversed in the two polymers, thereby improving the overlap integral. Conversion efficiencies up to 7%/W cm(2) were achieved in the first experiments. (C) 1997 American Institute of Physics.
