Abstract

A new type of electro-optic (EO) polymer is prepared in this work. The main chain of the EO polymer is made of polyphosphazenes, and the side chain consists of carbazole based nitro azobenzene. The principle and method of preparation are given and the characteristics of this material are studied in details. The polymer with an EO coefficient of 35 pm/V has fine stability and can be easily processed. It also shows photoconductivity due to the carbazole group. This polymer thin film is obtained through performance improvement. Terahertz (THz) wave can be detected using the device, which is made of the new polymer. Owing to its fascinating properties, this new type of EO polymer has the potential to be widely applied in photorefractive materials as well as for emission and detection of THz radiation.
