An electro-optic polymer with photolime gel and chlorophenol red dye is prepared using a newly developed mixed solvent of water and ethyline-glycol. This new solvent not only prevents the EO chromophore from re-crystallization, but also help the guest and host materials to mix well in the molecular level. As a result, high EO coefficient of 40 pm/v has been obtained with improved stability of EO effect. A new pulsed poling technique is developed, which increase the poling efficiency up to 35% compared with the traditional parallel-plate poling method.
