Paper Abstract

Langmuir-Blodgett films have been prepared from amphiphilc molecules containing an indandione-based nonlinear chromophore. Study of the pressure-area (π-A) isotherm enabled us to find optimal conditions for monolayer transfer to a glass substrate. The multilayer films thus formed exhibited strong optical second harmonic generation with a bulk nonlinear co-efficient equal to the ideal value predicted by the product of the chromophore density and its known molecular hyperpolarizability.
