Paper Abstract

This paper reports on optical and optoelectronic properties of DNA-surfactant complex films which were intercalated with a NLO dye, Disperse Red 13(DR-13). Circular dichroism (CD) analysis indicated that the orientation of the azo dye, DR-13 doped in DNA-surfactant complex film was achieved by inserting the dye molecules into the nano-size space between base pairs of DNA. The Disperse Red 13-doped DNA thin film displayed higher THG than that of CS2 about two orders. On the other hand, SHG signal could not be observed even in the presence of anisotropic ordering of the molecular chromospheres on template of the double helix of DNA, perhaps because of absorption of the dye for SHG light.
