Optical second harmonic generation from Langmuir-type molecular monolayers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A single molecular layer is generally sufficient to produce observable optical second harmonic generation (SHG). Furthermore, the selection rules governing this process make the SHG from a single monolayer often stronger than that from the medium supporting the monolayer. We have studied SHG from various Langmuir-type monolayers (i.e., monolayers spread on a water surface) in the following contexts: Study of chemical reactions (e.g., polymerization) and two-dimensional phase transitions in molecular monolayers on water. Development of a new technique to evaluate optical nonlinear coefficients of organic molecules, and their relationship to the molecular structure.
