There is currently a great deal of interest in the development of new organic and polymeric materials for use in the field of nonlinear optics. This paper will review the advantages of such materials over their inorganic counterparts, and the specific attractions of using polymer-based systems. The status of materials under development for use in electro-optic waveguide switches and couplers will be outlined, and their prospects for commercial exploitation discussed.
