Investigation of NLO properties of substituted (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicenes by semiempirical and DFT methods

Daul, Claude ; Ciofini, Ilaria ; Weber, Valéry

In this article, we propose a theoretical study of static and dynamic polarizability α, first hyperpolarizability β, and second hyperpolarizability γ of substituted (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicenes. Both a semiempirical approach, in the case of static and dynamic properties, and density functional theory, in the case of static electric properties, were used. The nonlinear optical (NLO) properties... Plus

    Summary
    In this article, we propose a theoretical study of static and dynamic polarizability α, first hyperpolarizability β, and second hyperpolarizability γ of substituted (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicenes. Both a semiempirical approach, in the case of static and dynamic properties, and density functional theory, in the case of static electric properties, were used. The nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of a set of 10 molecules were investigated to predict the couple of donor-acceptor substituents that could best enhance the optical properties of (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicene.
