Artificially structured nonlinear optical and electro-optic materials

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the final report of a 3-year project. Emerging electro-optic technologies, including optical signal processing, switching, and data manipulation, require high performance, processable nonlinear optical (NLO) and electro-optic (EO) materials. Aim of this project is to combine physical characterization and materials modelling to guide a rational synthesis of artifically structured materials optimized for NLO and EO applications. New materials consisting of chromophores optimized for the red and near-infrared spectral region, directly attached to optical substrates using covalent bonding of self-assembled mono- and multi-layers have been produced and their NLO response measured. A second strategy, based on construction of multiple ... continued below

Description

This is the final report of a 3-year project. Emerging electro-optic technologies, including optical signal processing, switching, and data manipulation, require high performance, processable nonlinear optical (NLO) and electro-optic (EO) materials. Aim of this project is to combine physical characterization and materials modelling to guide a rational synthesis of artifically structured materials optimized for NLO and EO applications. New materials consisting of chromophores optimized for the red and near-infrared spectral region, directly attached to optical substrates using covalent bonding of self-assembled mono- and multi-layers have been produced and their NLO response measured. A second strategy, based on construction of multiple heterojunctions of one-dimensional solids, is also being explored. Results of CW and ultrafast optical and Raman spectroscopy of these materials demonstrate the highly polarizable nature of the junctions, confirming the NLO potential of the materials. Overall goal was to develop these synthetic approaches through a combined synthesis, characterization, and theoretical effort where materials modeling, benchmarked by observed physical properties, is used to guide rational synthesis of advanced electronic materials.
