Driven by rise in demand for telecommunication, laser and electro-optic applications, global market for non-linear optical materials is projected to reach $1.0 billion by the year 2015.

Non-linear Optical Materials: A Global Market Report

Materials with highly nonlinear optical (NLO) characteristics are currently of great technological and scientific interest for diverse applications. Currently, there exists a wide range of non-linear optical materials with varied wavelengths, damage thresholds and optical characteristics. The current focus is to develop materials that meet all requirements such as faster response, high damage threshold and wide transparency range coupled with adaptability, processing ability and the ability to interface with other materials.

Non linear optical materials are expected to play an important role in the transformation of information storage and transmission from electrical to optical domain, as stated in a recent report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Robust growth in demand for high bandwidth fiber optic networking infrastructure is expected to boost the demand for Non-Linear Optical Materials Wireless communication market is expected to account for the majority of demand for non-linear optical materials, lasers and substrate crystals. Among the materials LiNbO3 (Lithium-Niobate) is widely used in telecommunication industry, particularly in optical modulators and mobile telephones. Non-linear polymeric and liquid crystalline materials hold huge potential for application in photonic data processing technologies and varied photonic systems such as high-speed optical switches, optical modulators, and high-density optical data storage media.
