Abstract
Magneto-optically active organic compounds are of great technological interest. In contrast to inorganic materials, used in most current applications, organic materials have the advantages of fast response times, easy processing, low cost and abundant resources of starting materials available. Conjugated organic molecules or polymers have been reported to be eligible candidates for exhibiting magneto-optical responses. As part of an ongoing search in our group for efficient magneto-optical materials, eight organic conjugated dyes were screened for their Faraday rotation responses. Based on the obtained preliminary results, it is expected that planar, efficiently pi- conjugated molecules have a higher chance for exhibiting significant magneto-optical responses. Further research will be undertaken to confirm this hypothesis.
