Abstract

The nonlinear-optical properties of a semi-interpenetrating polymer network of poly(vinyl alcohol) glutaraldehyde – polyaniline were studied. Large (≥10−12 cm2/W) and fast (<50 ps) refractive optical nonlinearites were observed. The potential of this novel material for photonic applications is evaluated.
