We synthesized the second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) copolymers for studying the effect of temperature on the temporal stability of the electro-optic effect. Heterocyclic azo chromophore was synthesized to be anchored to methacrylate and naphthalate polymer backbone. The decaying behavior of the electro-optic response was traced at different temperatures. The rates of relaxation were considered based on the difference in the polymer structure.
