Our recent measurement of the third order nonlinear optical susceptibility of PTS polydiacetylene with six picoseconds temporal resolution has confirmed the previous speculation that this class of fully ordered polymeric crystals is a very promising candidate for nonlinear optical guided wave devices. These measurements were made possible by a new method of crystal growth that uses a shear in order to orient the monomers on the substrate. The low surface and bulk optical scattering that is characteristic of the materials grown with this new method are a necessity in any eventual integrated optical device. Additional fabrication proceedures have been demonstrated using ion implantation to modify the optical and electrical properties of the materials.
