We present transient measurements of the electro-optic response and the heterodyne technique used to monitor the poling process in-situ. Several of the measurements presented are made on a low-dopinglevel guest-host polymer to facilitate comparison with theory. Also presented are measurements on a stable poled side-chain polymer. The data indicate response rise and fall times of the order of milliseconds for the guest-host sample and the temperature dependence of those times is compared to the theoretical model. Good qualitative agreement between theory and experimental data is presented.
