Poling of Electro–Optic Materials: Paradigms and Concepts
Grzegorz Pawlik, Antoni C. Mitus, Ileana Rau and Francois Kajzar

“Microscopic” and “macroscopic” paradigms used in connection with electric field poling are presented and critically discussed. We argue that some of them suffer from serious inconsistencies.

Keywords: Host–guest system, electric field poling, nonlinear susceptibility, Monte Carlo.
