Abstract
We demonstrate resonant third harmonic generation as a powerful tool for analyzing the quasi 2-D molecular orientational order in a Langmuir-Blodgett film of poly(bis-m- butoxyphenylsilane). By recording Maker-fringes at different angles between the polarization of the fundamental beam and the dipping direction, we were able to determine the order parameters *2> and *4> simultaneously. We found *2> equals 0.466 +/- 0.030 and *4> equal to -0.12 +/- 0.10.
