The promise of organic and polymeric materials for electro-optic and nonlinear optic applications has been advanced a great deal in recent years. This interest arises from the fact that successful molecular design has produced materials with useful nonlinear susceptibilities while maintaining compliant structural, mechanical, and processing properties" 5. This paper will discuss the application of such materials in the construction of electro-optic channel-waveguide devices. In section 2 we will discuss a technique for fabricating channel-waveguide devices in polymer materials. Section 3 will briefly cover the interest in high-speed electro-optic devices in these materials, and in section 4 we will describe a device architectures that can take advantage of the processing properties used to make polymer waveguides.
