We have developed a new compounds with a thiophene bridge and an acceptors that gain aromaticity, such as 3-phenyl-5-isoxazolone, diphenylthiobarbituric acid. These compounds have a large second-order nonlinearity roughly tens time that of the common dye Disperse-Red 1 and good thermal stability and are therefore a promising candidates for electro-optic poled polymer applications.
