7 October 1996 Investigation of solvent effect on optical nonlinearity of organic molecules
Author Affiliations +
Experimental methods based on nonlinear optical processes such as electrical field induced second harmonic generation and hyper-Rayleigh scattering are often used in measuring the second order microscopic susceptibility of optically nonlinear organic molecules in solution. One of the fundamental problems in these experimental procedures is the influence of the presence of solvent molecules on the optical nonlinearity of solute molecules. We have investigated this solvent effect experimentally and our preliminary results are presented.
