Paper Abstract

Second order nonlinear optically active heterocyclic compounds with extended length-scale were synthesized and their nonlinear optical properties were characterized by EFISH measurements. The results from the study of two series of heterocyclic compounds with different electron acceptors reveal a power-law dependence of (Beta) (mu) on length, and in both series similar power-law exponent of approximately 2 are observed. Results of a theoretical model calculation are in qualitative agreement with the experimental results.
