Towards an Understanding of Structure-Nonlinearity Relationships in Triarylamine-based Push-Pull Electro-Optic Chromophores: The Influence of Substituent and Molecular Conformation on Molecular Hyperpolarizabilities (Royal Soc Chemistry, 2014-02-17)We calculated the second-order hyperpolarizability (beta) of a series of triarylamine (TAA) based donor-bridge-acceptor (D-π-A) push-pull type nonlinear optical (NLO) chromophores with different electron donor moieties and ...
(2012-12-17)The piezoelectric performance of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is shown to double through the controlled incorporation of carbon nanomaterial. Specifically, PVDF composites containing carbon fullerenes (C60) and single-walled ...
