Paper Abstract

Machine dyes are frequently used as nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores. In the case of our dyes, both, the substitution of the methine proton by a cyano group and the substitution of the methine carbon by nitrogen, lead to a strong bathochromic shift. In this work the influence of these modifications to the first hyperpolarizability is systematically investigated.
