Abstract

A transparent BaTiO3 particle/polymer hybrid was synthesized from a Ba–Ti double alkoxide modified with an organic ligand and its refractive index and second harmonic generation were studied. BaTiO3 particles modified with 2-vinyloxyethanol (ethylene glycol monovinyl ether, EGMVE) were polymerized with methyl methacrylate (MMA) yielding the transparent BaTiO3 particle/poly MMA hybrid. X-ray photoelectron spectra indicated that the formation of chemical bonds between BaTiO3 nanoparticles and the organic matrix. The refractive indexes of the hybrid films depended on the crystallite size of BaTiO3 nanoparticles and the volume fractions of BaTiO3 and polymer phases. The hybrid film synthesized at BaTiO3/8EGMVE/30H2O/PMMA revealed a refractive index of 1.65 at 589 nm with an Abbe number of 54. The hybrid film exhibited a second harmonic wave of 532 nm on irradiation with a fundamental wave of 1,064 nm.
