Abstract

An improvement on the simplified theory of all-optical poling [Chem. Phys. Lett. <b>286,</b> 415 (1998)] is proposed. In this improvement the influence of the <i>cis</i> isomer is taken into account in the process of photoinduced molecular polar alignment. An analytical expression for the induced polar order in the steady-state regime is derived. This expression shows that, although the contribution to the photoinduced second-order susceptibility from the <i>cis</i> state itself can be neglected, the population of the <i>cis</i> state plays an important role. This result suggests the possibility that one can improve the induced polar order by increasing the poling temperature, so that thermal-assisted optical poling can be explained.
