Paper Abstract

Organic electro-optic materials have potential applications in optical communication and data processing. One major obstacle to the realization of the full potential of OEO materials is the interchromophore electrostatic interactions which have prevented the poling-induced chromophore order parameter from reaching above 0.3. In this presentation, we show designs of new chromophores that have ring structures surrounding the center of chromophores to prevent chromophores from packing in the antiparallel fashion, and modification of such chromophores with complementary DNA nucleobases to strengthen head-tail interactions.
