We present the second order nonlinear optical properties of the Disperse Red 1 (DR1)-doped poly (cyano phenylene sulfide) (PCPS) - novel ferroelectric amorphous polymers. The PCPS possess self-organized long-range polarizations when they are annealed at temperatures higher than their glass transition point. From the unique nonelectrical poling effect, the second-order nonlinear susceptibility was obtained without the conventional poling procedures. The optimized conditions to create the second-order nonlinear optical susceptibility were also investigated in terms of the sample thicknesses and the annealing temperatures.
