A conceptually novel materials design, based on crosslinked ferroelectric liquid-crystalline polymers, is demonstrated for efficient switching of a second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) response in the solid state. By controlling the molecular alignment of the NLO moieties through two-photon isomerization of azobenzene molecules, reversible isothermal photocontrol of second-harmonic generation is achieved with contrast of up to 20.
