Abstract

We have prepared Langmuir-Blodgett monolayer and multilayer films of a polymeric amphiphile with a side chain containing a chromophore of high molecular hyperpolarizability for second order nonlinear optics. Using optical techniques including polarized transmission and attenuated total reflectance spectroscopies, second harmonic generation, and ellipsometry, we have characterized the orientational order of the chromophore and other polymer groups in the films. The high degree of chromophoric order seen in these films indicates that such polymers are good candidates as materials to fabricate Langmuir-Blodgett films for nonlinear optical applications.
