Azo dyes with different pull/push substituents are selected as photosensitive molecules. Guest-host amorphous azo polymer samples are prepared by doping these azo dyes directly in poly(methyl methacrylate) polymeric matrices. Nonlinear optical properties of these pull/push type azo dye-doped polymers are investigated using the Z-scan experiment. The influence of the pull/push substituents and the azo dye concentration on the nonlinear optical property is studied.
