Abstract

Organic electro-optic (EO) materials are of considerable interest owing to their attractive characteristics for applications in high-speed information processing and sensing. The purpose of this review is to highlight the areas of special significance in recent organic EO materials development. Particular attention is paid to recent advances in achieving exceptional material properties (such as large optical nonlinearity and excellent stability) through rational molecular design of dipolar chromophores, supramolecular assembly of dendrimers, and click chemistry enabled control of lattice hardening of nonlinear optical polymers. Important issues relating to applications and prospects of these advanced EO materials are also briefly mentioned.
