Mo tris(dithiolene) Two-photon Absorbing Chromophores
What is it about?
Two molybdenum(VI) tris(dithiolene) complexes with a three dimensional structure substituents synthesized and their two-photon absorption properties were determined. Both of these complexes exhibited significant two-photon cross sections around the wavelength of 1300 nm, with the naphthyl substituted complex showing a two-photon cross section of 660 10^-50 cm4 s^-1 photon^-1, suggesting a new class of three-dimensional
Why is it important?
These molecules show sizable two-photon absorption at 1300 nm and may be useful for two-photon based optical switching for telecommunications.
