We report on the effects of electron irradiation at doses up to 44 MRad on planar waveguides fabricated from nonlinear optical polymers. The second-order optical nonlinearity was measured by second-harmonic generation before and after irradiation of two types of polymeric waveguides: one fabricated from a guest-host polymer and the other from a main- chain polymer. Mechanisms for observed effects are discussed.
