Abstract

The macroscopic third order optical susceptibilities χ(3)1111(-3ω;ω,ω, ω) of π-conjugated polymeric systems were determined by means of Maker fringe technique at a wavelength of 1907 nm. We demonstrated the propagation of light in these polymeric thin films by mode-line measurements and/or by a direct observation with CCD camera. The possibility of waveguide application was also discussed.
