  • ABSTRACTWithin the past several years, the development of advanced materials with large second and third order nonlinear effects has generated interest in developing devices to exploit these properties in military systems of the future
  • This interest has taken many forms, from the funding of basic research aimed at developing enhanced nonlinear optical effects in materials to the deployment of actual mil-spec devices
  • At this same forum, we delineated a series of materials performance requirements which, if achieved, would allow device developers to take maximum advantage of these nonlinear effects in such disciplines as optical computing, optoelectronic interconnects and sensor protection
  • DoD requirements for advanced materials and devices have continued to accentuate the need for advanced nonlinear optical materials
  • As in the previous paper, we will confine ourselves to three challenging areas: nonlinear optical materials for optical computing applications, materials for computer peripherals and internode communications, and materials for sensor protection
