Abstract: AbstractIn recent years, a great deal of interest has been directed toward the use of organic materials in the development of high-efficiency optoelectronic and photonic devices. There is a myriad of possibilities among organic materials, which allows flexibility in the design of unique structures with a variety of functional groups. The use of nonlinear optical (NLO) organic materials as thin-film waveguides allows full exploitation of their desirable qualities by permitting long interaction lengths and large…
