Abstract

We present the design, fabrication and characterization of the optical properties of one-dimensional metal-organic photonic bandgaps (MO-PBGs) composed of a tetraphenyldiaminobiphenyl-based polymer and ultrathin electrically continuous Cu layers. The fabricated MO-PBGs achieve a peak transmission of around 44% at 620 nm combined with very large spectral, around 120 nm FWHM, and angular, more than 120° field-of-view, bandwidths. Using 140 fs pulses at various wavelengths we have found up to 10 × enhancements in the nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of the MO-PBGs when compared with the NLO response of ultrathin electrically continuous Cu layers.
