Using polyimide as host in a guest-host electro-optic thin film a thermally stable poled electro- optic response is demonstrated at temperatures at 150 degree(s)C and 300 degree(s)C. A coplanar-electrode poling geometry is used so that the guest molecular alignment between the electrodes is coincident with the free volume of the host. Electric field poling during curing process including imidization (170 - 230 degree(s)C) and densification (340 - 380 degree(s)C) accounts for the highly thermally stable electro-optic response.
