Intense optical second harmonic generation from centrosymmetric nanocrystalline para-nitroaniline

Abstract:

We demonstrate an approach that uses normally centrosymmetric, but highly polarizable organic molecules of para-nitroaniline (p-NA) as very efficient second harmonic generator (SHG) for near infra-red light. The approach is based on an effective manipulation of the nanocrystalline size and their assembly into a highly orientated mesocrystalline structures. The resulting mesocrystalline form of p-NA consists of multiple nanocrystals with common orientation, providing a set...
