Abstract

The dependence of the second- and third-order polarizabilities ((beta) and (gamma) ) on ground-state polarization was measured for a series of donor-acceptor polyenes using electric field induced second harmonic generation and third harmonic generation, respectively. The changes in ground-state polarization, associated with the donor/acceptor strength or solvent polarity, were probed by x-ray crystallography, 1H-NMR, electronic absorption, and Raman spectroscopies. The observed behavior of (beta) and (gamma) as a function of ground- state polarization agrees well with theoretical predictions. In particular, positive and negative peaks, as well as sign changes, were observed for both (beta) and (gamma) . The dependences for (beta) and (gamma) are consistent with a derivative relationship between them. In addition, the third-order polarizability of a series of molecules possessing zero bond length alternation was found to be negative, in agreement with predictions based on the relationship between the polarizabilities and ground-state geometry.
