A series of copoly(2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-1,4-phenylenevinylene-2,5-dioctyloxy-1,4-phenylenevin ylene)s containing variable ratios of tetrafluorophenylenevinylene and dialkoxyphenylenevinylene repeating units has been synthesized via the Stille cross-coupling reaction in order to investigate the influence on the Χ(3) of the simultaneous presence of electron-deficient and electron-rich aromatic monomers in the PPV backbone. Third-order nonlinear optical properties of the resulting materials have been studied in chloroform solutions at λ=1064 nm using the picosecond Z-scan technique. The nonlinear refractive index has been found to be negative, strongly dependent on the copolymer composition, and as high as (-10±2)×10-12 cm2/W.
