Paper Abstract

Linear and nonlinear optical properties of well ordered Y-type Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) multilayers of 2- docosylamino-5-nitropyridine (DCANP) have been investigated. The nonlinear optical susceptibilities have been determined for the wavelengths = 1064 nm (d33 = (7.8 1) pm/V. d31 = (2.0 0.5) pm/V) and ? = 1318 nm (d33 = (5.6 1) pm/V). The optical homogeneity was investigated using secondharmonic generation. Waveguiding experiments allowed the determination of the dispersion of the refractive index fl3 (n3632'8"'= 1.598). 1'E and TM modes propagating over more than 20 mm could be excited. Guided wave attenuation coefficients as low as 12 dB/cm (at the wavelength = 632.8 nm) could be measured.
