Paper Abstract

Measurements of optical second-harmonic generation from well ordered Y-type Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) multilayers of 2-docosylamino-5-nitropyridine (DCANP) are reported. The layers have a good optical quality over the whole film area. They are transparent in the visible and the near infrared. The birefringence and nonlinear optical susceptibilities have been investigated. The anisotropy of the second-harmonic efficiency indicates that the chromophores are aligned along the dipping direction.
