Paper Abstract

In recent years second-harmonic generation (SHG) has gained popularity as a surface analytical technique. Its intrinsic surface sensitivity can make it useful for studying thin films, or even monolayers. In particular, numerous works have appeared where SHG was used to study monolayer or multilayer films of organic molecules deposited by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) deposition technique.Often the interest has been in deriving information about molecular hyperpolarizibilities, or orientational properties of single molecules or parts of molecules. In this work we show that structural information is also available at the supramolecular level.
