Potential advantages of organic and polymeric nonlinear optical materials for use in all-optical devices include large, rapid nonlinear optical responses,1 chemical tailorability, and processing simplicity. After many years of investigating nonlinear optical phenomena, there is now a move toward developing practical devices based on these materials. In this paper, we demonstrate operation of a novel, active mirror structure, constructed entirely of polymeric materials.
