Abstract

We report the electro-optic properties of hybrid silica solgel doped with a nonlinear chromophore with large hyperpolarizability. Electro-optic coefficients of higher than 30 pm/V have been obtained. Moreover, the electro-optic coefficients have good temporal stability and show promise for the development of high-speed electro-optic devices.
