Paper Abstract

Compounds having large second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) response are those composed of suitable donor and acceptor groups in a delocalized π-system. In addition to the relative strengths of the donor/acceptor groups, the performance of a NLO compound depends also on the nature of the conjugated π-system, the molecular conformation and other geometric factors. To design better NLO materials, it is essential to have a good understanding of these factors. These molecular properties are addressed from the theoretical point of view. Their relation to NLO response will also be discussed.
