Abstract

An organic nonlinear optical crystal waveguide consisting of 4′-nitrobenzylidene-3-acetamino-4-methoxyaniline (MNBA) and 4′-nitrobenzylidene-3-ethylcarbonylamino-4-methoxyaniline (MNBA-Et) has been fabricated by a two-step heteroepitaxial growth technique. An MNBA-Et homoepitaxial layer used as a buffer layer prevents the formation of a MNBA polycrystalline domain at the heteroepitaxial interface. The MNBA-Et homoepitaxial layer also improves the crystallinity of a single-domain MNBA heteroepitaxial layer. The transmission loss of the MNBA–MNBA-Et slab waveguide is reduced to less than 3 dB/cm by the insertion of the MNBA-Et homoepitaxial layer.
