Systematic behavior of electro-optic chromophore photostability

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The wavelength dependence of the one-photon absorption–induced photodegradation rate has been measured from the visible to the near IR for a variety of electro-optic chromophore-doped polymers. Systematic behavior is identified. The lifetime of the electro-optic activity is found to increase exponentially over 4–6 orders of magnitude for wavelengths ranging from peak of absorption, typically in the visible, to 1000 nm. Many popular chromophores developed for electro-optics over the past 10 years are compared.
