Paper Abstract

The synthesis and second-order nonlinear optical properties of acceptor substituted biologically derived (beta) -apo-8'-carotenal compounds are reported. Electric field-induced second harmonic generation (EFISH) measurements give values of (beta) (0) which are 2 - 6 times greater than for 4-N,N-dimethylamino-4'-nitrostilbene (DANS).
