Observation of second-harmonic generation in an oriented glassy nematic phase of a closo-decaborane derivative
The optical second-harmonic generation(SHG) and the linear optical properties were investigated in a planar cell containing aligned nonchiral nematic derivative of B₁₀H₁₀²⁻: 1-(4-heptyloxypyridin-1-yl)-10-(4-pentyl-1-thiacyclohexyl)-closo-decaborane (HPTD) as a function of temperature. The compound showed a low level of the SHG signal in the polycrystalline state, and no nonlinear optical effect was detected in the fluid nematic state (N) either in the presence or absence of an orienting...[Show more]
