Abstract

Hyper-Rayleigh scattering measurements are performed on nonlinear optical chromophores using an excitation wavelength of 1907 nm. This wavelength is the longest that has yet been reported for the hyper-Rayleigh scattering experiment and allows measurements of the first hyperpolarizability of chromophores that are free of contributions from two-photon absorption induced fluorescence and reduces one and two photon resonance enhancement to a minimum. Using the 1907 nm setup we demonstrate good agreement between our results and those obtained with the electric field induced second harmonic generation (EFISHG) technique previously performed at this wavelength.
