ABSTRACT
Investigates the conditions essential for strong field, in-plane poling for nonlinear optical devices in highly nonlinear side chain polymers. Achievement of applied poling field before the occurrence of breakdown; Attainment of a nonlinearity with stable poling at 300 V/mum; Geometries used to apply electric fields; Improvements made to optimize poling fields.
