Photodegradation Of Various Electro-Optic Polymer Families
Charge Transfer States; Electro-optic Chromophores; Photo-oxidation; Photodegradation; Polymer Photonics; Trans-cis isomerization
The photostability of different chromophore families has been studied as a function of probe wavelength in the spectral range 400 to 1320 nm. Multiple donor and acceptor groups have been attached to the main bridge structures containing stilbene, azobenzene, aniline, thiophene and anilinethiophene substructures. The figure of merit B/σ was measured and the quantum efficiency B-1 was evaluated for over 40 dye containing polymers, including both side-chain and guest-host systems.
