Abstract

The dispersion of the fifth-order nonlinear optical susceptibility χ113333(5)(ω; ω, 0, 0, 0, 0) of a spin-coated polydiacetylene film (poly(BPOD), i.e., poly{[[8-butoxy carbonyl] methyl urethanyl]1-(5-pyrimidyl)-octa-1, 3-diyne}) is determined through electroabsorption spectroscopy. The maximum values of the real and the imaginary parts of χ113333(5)(ω; ω, 0, 0, 0, 0) are 9.87×10-21 esu and 1.28×10-20 esu, respectively. A model is proposed to explain the spectral dispersion of the nonlinear optical susceptibility.
