Results of investigations on polymer systems as third-order nonlinear optical materials are presented. A few doped polymer systems containing cyanine dyes have a large thirdorder nonlinear optical susceptibility x. Several amorphous polymers incorporating relectron conjugated units are also synthesized. Increases in x3 are shown to be due to longer yr-electron conjugation and acceptor-donor pairs.
