Change of permanent electric dipole moment in the lower-energy charge transfer transitions for a series of symmetrical and non-symmetrical ferrocene-phenyleneethynylene oligomers were studied by measuring the corresponding femtosecond two-photon absorption cross section spectra, and were determined to be in the range Δμ = 3 – 10 D. Quantum-chemical calculations of Δμ for the non-symmetrical oligomers show good quantitative agreement with the experimental results, thus validating two-photon absorption spectroscopy as a viable experimental approach to study electrostatic properties of organometallics and other charge transfer systems.
