A wide array of chromophores which hold great promise for two-photon applications has been developed. These molecules were based on a donor-π-donor, donor-acceptor-donor, or acceptor-donor-acceptor structural motifs. It has been shown that the magnitude of the two-photon absorption cross section, δ, and the position of the two-photon absorption maximum can be controlled by varying the length of the conjugated bridge and by varying the strength of the donor and acceptor groups.
