Abstract

In continuation of our studies on donor-acceptor substituted heteroaromatic nonlinear optical chromophores, we have developed a new series of thiophene derivatives containing dialkylamino electron-donor and tricyanovinyl electron-acceptor substituents. EFISH measurements indicate that the combination of tricyanovinyl acceptors and thiophene conjugating moieties yields dramatically enhanced molecular nonlinear properties [(beta)(mu) (at (lambda) equals 1.907 micrometers) equals 6000-9100 × 10-48 esu].
