The ability of microcontact printing to build highly ordered alkanethiol self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Pt substrates within a short time is studied by sum frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy and contact angle measurements. The deposition of ordered hexadecanethiol and dodecanethiol monolayers onto platinum substrates is achieved in less than 1 s. The film order and the alkane chain orientation are deduced from the SFG fingerprint acquired under different sets of laser polarization. Comparisons between the SAMs prepared by printing or by immersion demonstrate that both methods lead to the same high quality organization. Patterning effects within printed films are also investigated with respect to the layer conformation. Finally, wetting properties of printed layers are correlated with the printing duration, corroborating the spectroscopic results. [less ▲]

For the first time, the sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectra of surface species have been measured in porous silicon (PS) layers. The range of the vibrations 2000–2300 cm–1 for the native species Si–Hx has been explored. Furthermore for the studied mesoporous materials, it has been found that, as opposed to the infrared absorption, the SFG signal increases with porosity. Finally, the angular dependence and the enhancement of the SFG signal were measured in a one-dimensional PS photonic crystal structure with a defect producing an energy level in the photonic band gap.

Laser tunability from 10 to 21 mm is obtained by use of an optical parametric oscillator based on a KTP crystal followed by a difference-frequency stage with a CdSe crystal. An all-solid-state picosecond Nd:YAG oscillator mode locked by a frequency-doubling nonlinear mirror is used for synchronous pumping. [less ▲]

The molecular orientation in self-assembled monolayers of thiophenol (TP) on Ag(1 1 1) and of para-nitroanilinododecane-thiol (NAT) on Au was investigated by infrared-visible sum-frequency generation between 500 and 1500 cm-1. Ab initio calculations were performed to determine the interface nonlinear response. The combined experimental and theoretical results reveal that the S–C bond of TP is tilted 37° from the Ag(1 1 1) surface normal, with the aromatic ring plane perpendicular to the surface. On Au, the tilt angle of the NAT molecule stabilizes below 60° at the end of film growth. [less ▲]

We demonstrate the ability of doubly resonant sum–frequency generation (DR-SFG) to investigate electron–phonon couplings at C60 –metal interfaces. Due to its coupling to electronic transitions, the totally symmetric Ag(2) vibration of C60 exhibits a huge enhancement of its nonlinear response for sum–frequency energies above the molecular electronic gap. We attribute this resonance to the coupling of the pentagonal pinch mode with the tiu lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of C60. [less ▲]
