Paper Abstract

Encapsulated by highly-fluorinated dendrons, a nonlinear optical chromophore core, which is based on the phenyl-tetracyanobutadienyl (Ph-TCBD) thiophene-stilbene-based NLO chromophore, exhibits a large ~30-40 nm blue shift of the charge-transfer absorption maximum, 20 oC higher decomposition temperature, and most impressively, three times higher E-O coefficient. The combination of these appreciable improvements makes the molecular design of dendritic modification as a very promising molecular-engineering for next generation of E-O materials.
