Abstract:

Summary Development of materials for nonlinear optics. The characterization of these materials was highlighted, especially with regard to the use of time-resolved spectroscopy to obtain important material parameters. The research in ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy. This involves developing new laser sources and new spectroscopic techniques, as well as their application to other research projects. Demonstrations of new effects in phase conjugation and measurement of materials parameters. One possible area of mutual interest is the problem of charge transport in liquid crystal molecules. The large dipole moments that are possible in these materials depends on the ability of electrons to move rapidly along the polymer chain. Time-resolved spectroscopy might be used as a method of measuring the rate at which this occurs.
