The photophysical, photochemical, two-photon absorption (2PA) and metal ion sensing properties of a new fluorene derivative (E)-1-(7-(4-(benzo[d]thiazol-2-yl)styryl)-9,9-bis(2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethyl)-9H-fluoren-2-yl)-3-(2-(9,10,16,17,18,19,21,22,23,24-decahydro-6H dibenzo[h,s][1,4,7,11,14,17]trioxatriazacycloicosin-20(7H)-yl)ethyl)thiourea (1) were(More)
Conjugated organic molecules with photochromic properties are being extensively studied as prospective optical switching and data storage materials. Among different photochromic compounds, diarylethenes demonstrate thermal stability, fatigue resistance, and high quantum yield. The mechanism of photoswitching in diarylethenes involves a symmetry-allowed(More)
Efficient reversible phototransformation of a new diarylethene-fluorene derivative, 1,2-bis(5-(9,9-didecyl-7-nitro-9H-fluoren-2-yl)-2-methylthiophen-3-yl)cyclopent-1-ene (1), was demonstrated in organic media under low-intensity laser excitation. Linear photophysical characterization of 1 was performed at room temperature in solvents of different polarity(More)
The synthesis, linear photophysical characterization, and nonlinear optical properties of two new symmetrical fluorene-containing quinolizinium derivatives, 2,8-bis((E)-2-(7-(diphenylamino)-9,9-dihexyl-9H-fluoren-2-yl)vinyl)quinolizinium hexafluorophosphate (1) and(More)
We report density functional theory (DFT) calculations of the Raman spectra for hexapeptides of glutamic acid and lysine in three different conformations (alpha, beta and PPII). The wave numbers of amide I, amide II and amide III bands of all three conformations predicted at B3LYP/6-31G and B3LYP/6-31G* are in good agreement with previously reported(More)
Two-photon absorption (2PA) and subsequent processes may be localized in space with a tightly focused laser beam. This property is used in a wide range of applications, including three dimensional data storage. We report theoretical studies of 5 conjugated chromophores experimentally shown to have large 2PA cross-sections. We use the Time Dependent Density(More)
New local " hybrid " functionals proposed by V. are benchmarked against nonlocal hybrid functionals. Their performance is tested on the total and high occupied orbital energies, as well as the electric moments of selected diatomic molecules. The new functionals, along with the Hartree-Fock and non-hybrid functionals, are employed for finite-difference(More)
