Abstract

Second harmonic generation from Langmuir-Blodgett films of E-N-octadecyl-4-(2-(4-dimethylaminophenyl)ethenyl)pyridinium iodide (a hemicyanine) interleaved with 4, 4'-dioctadecyl-3, 5, 3', 5'-tetramethyldipyrrylmethene hydrobromide (spacer) increases quadratically with the number of active layers, the second-order nonlinear optical susceptibility of film structures comprising from 1 to 150 bilayers being 70 pm/V. The synthesis and nonlinear optical properties are reported.
