Paper Abstract

We summarize some of our past work in the field on optimizing molecules for second order and third order nonlinear optical applications. We also present some previously unpublished results suggesting a particular optimization of the popular cyano- and nitrovinyl acceptor groups. In addition we provide some new quadratic electro-optic results which serve to further verify our choice of a restricted three-level model suitable for optimizing third order nonlinearities in molecules. Finally we present a new squarylium dye with a large third order optical nonlinearity (-9.5 X 10-34 cm7/esu2; EFISH (gamma) at 1906 nm).
