A series of side chain liquid crystal co-polymers is prepared, starting from monomers containing both mesogenic and hyperpolarizable groups. When thin films of these polymers are poled by an electric field in the plane of the film, they exhibit optical nonlinearity both parallel and perpendicular to the direction of the poling field.
