Fabrication and characterization of Langmuir Blodgett film of a Coumarin dye 7-Hydroxy-N-Octadecylcoumarin-3-Carboxamide (7HNO3C) Santanu Chakraborty, S. A.

Hussain and D- Bhattacharjee Department of Physics, Tripura University ; Suryamaninagar- 799130; Tripura, India Email:- santanu.tu @ gmail.com; tuphysic@sancharnet.in The Langmuir Blodgett (LB) technique is a way of making ultra thin nanostructure films with a controlled layer structure and crystal parameter, which have many envisioned applications in technology for optical and molecular electronic devices as well as in signal processing transformation. LB films have a unique potential for controlling the structure of organized molecules on the ultimate scale of miniaturization, and must surely find a niche where this potential is fulfilled. Coumarin derivatives are widely used as laser dyes. The ultraviolet activity of these dyes led to its use as a sunscreen agent, and an optical brightener for textiles. It has also been used as a gain medium for dye lasers. These dyes can also be used as a fluorescence indicator for metal ions such as copper and calcium. It acts as a pH indicator in the range 6.5-8.9. In the present work. the fabrication and characterization of Langmuir Blodgett (LB) films of highly fluorescent coumarin derivative namely 7-hydroxy-N-octadecylcoumarin-3carboxamide(7HNO3C) have been reported. The behavior of surface pressure versus area per molecule isotherm reveals successful incorporation of 7HNO3C molecules into Langmuir monolayer. Stable Langmuir monolayer was successfully transferred onto solid substrate to form mono- and multilayered LB films. The nature of aggregation and change of orientation of the molecules in the films have been investigated using UV-Vis absorption and steady state fluorescence spectroscopic study.
