Paper Abstract

We investigated on cyanine dye (HQ) in Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films using UV-visible spectra and second-harmonic generation (SHG) methods. UV-visible spectra indicated a uniform film transfer. The significant SHG fringe signal as a function of angle of incidence for Z-type LB films observed respectively. The second-order susceptibility χ(2)zzz, refractive indexes at 532 nm as well as the average tilt angle ψ between the molecular (dipolar) axis and surface normal, obtained by means of fitting the SHG data, are 42 pM/V-1, 1.4841, 57° and 32 pM/V-1, 1.4775, 53° for LB films without and with Cd2+ ions, respectively. These high nonlinearities are due to resonant enhancement resulting from the proximity of the second harmonic wavelength to the absorption band of the films.
