Abstract

The chain-length dependences of static third-order hyperpolarizabilities γSTAT of the homologous series of thiacyanines, of their meso-nitrogen-substituted derivatives, and of simple bis(dimethylamino)methine dyes are determined from nondegenerate four-wave mixing dispersion curves. We determined nearly the same very rapid increase of γSTAT with growing numbers of π electrons of the chain (γSTAT-N8±2) for both the thiacyanine and the bis(dimethylamino)methine series, an alternating influence of meso-nitrogen substitution for even and for odd double bonds of the chain, and a saturation of the hyperpolarizability for the longest thiacyanine (thiatricarbocyanine). We discuss our results, taking into account semiempirical quantum chemical calculations.

Dependence of the real part Re γ(ω1)/γTFE and of the imaginary part Im γ(ω1)/γTFE of the third-order hyperpolarizability of thiacyanine (thiatrimethine), bis-(3-ethyl-benzothiazol-2-yl)-monomethinium tetrafluoroborate, on excitation frequency ω1 and excitation wavelength λ1, respectively, normalized to the hyperpolarizability of the solvent TFE. The molecular structure is given in the inset. Parameters of the fits (dotted curve) are γSTATI=-12γTFE, γSTATII=+3γTFE, ωTP=36 800 cm-1, ΓTP=2500 cm-1, and ωOP=23 800 cm-1.

Dependence of the π-electron contribution of the static hyperpolarizabilities -γSTATπ of the homologous series of thiacyanines and of bis(dimethylamino)methines on the number of π electrons of the chain obtained from experimental results and calculated on the basis of the mopac-pm3 program package. The straight lines represent rough approximations of experimental and calculated γSTATπ by power-law dependences γπ-Nx.
