Abstract

A new class of nonlinear optical materials, tetrahedral tin complexes in which the metal ion can act as a polarizable group linked to donor dimethylamino moieties, is described. An example is shown in the Figure. The quadratic hyperpolarizability coefficients determined by hyper-Raman scattering are reported and the important characteristics of the molecules discussed.
