Abstract

Protection-deprotection of silyl-derivatized surface hydroxyl groups represents a new, "one-pot" strategy for the layer-by-layer construction of polar, covalently interlinked electrooptic molecular superlattices. These, siloxane-based multilayer structures are shown to be smooth, adherent, and structurally regular and to exhibit excellent electrooptic/nonlinear optic responses with χ(2)zzz∼220 pm/V and r33∼80 pm/V without electric field poling. This all "wet-chemical self-assembly approach should be readily amenable to automation.
