Abstract
Future generations of photonic devices which incorporate poled organic nonlinear optical materials may be aided by, or require the use of non-traditional electrodes. This report details the integration of highly doped silicon as one of the poling/modulating electrodes in the simple reflection type experiment for determination of nonlinear optical activity in a guest-host polymer system. The measurements illustrate that the behavior of doped-silicon and the traditional indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes are analogous. A number of organic chromophore guests were investigated as well as multiple polymer hosts. Results demonstrate both successful poling and subsequent modulation of NLO materials, including the calculation of r33 values comparable to those achieved using a standard ITO electrode.
