Non-Linearities in Organic Materials
- Programme type: Research
- Study location: Edinburgh
Specific optical properties of organic materials can be enhanced by molecular engineering. In collaboration with synthesis groups, both within the UK and internationally, a variety of materials have been studied, using CW to sub-picosecond laser spectroscopy. Polymeric diacetylene and charge-transfer materials offer the potential of picosecond timescale non-linearities for optical logic and memory devices.
