Paper Abstract

The third-order optical polarizabilities (gamma) of a new homologous series of oligomeric squaraines of the indole series (monomer-pentamer) and of corresponding monomers were investigated by degenerate four wave mixing (DFWM) at 1064 nm and related to results from two-photon absorption experiments in an energy range from 1.75 to 3.2 eV. Important two-photon contributions can be deduced to vibronic coupling and the influence to (gamma) has been considered within a four-level model. The nature of the subchromophore interaction within the oligomers can succesfully be described as mainly electrostatic within the framework of simple exciton coupling theory.
