Abstract

The nonlinear optical response of some O-doped PAHs is systematically investigated in the present work aiming to understand the influence of structural effects on their nonlinear optical response. In that view, the third-order nonlinear optical properties of these PAHs were measured under 4 ns, visible (532 nm) and infrared (1064 nm) laser excitation. The O-doped PAHs were found exhibiting large saturable absorption and negative sign nonlinear refraction under visible excitation, both increasing with the addition of naphtalene units and with the number of O-atoms. Their nonlinear optical response was found to be negligible under infrared excitation. Similar measurements performed on thin films of these PAHs have shown that they maintain their large nonlinear optical response even in solid state, confirming their high potential for opto-electronic and photonic applications.
