Based on the attenuated-total-reflection technique, a new method has been proposed to determine the second hyperpolarizability of the linear conjugated polymer in the off-resonant region by means of quadratic electro-optic effect. An important feature of this method is the absence of a high-power pulse laser, resulting in more convenience and cost effectivity than other techniques.
