Pyroelectric and dielectric data are presented for Langmuir-Blodgett multilayers of molecules of a class of organo-ruthenium complexes. A correlation between the average area per molecule and the magnitude of the pyroelectric coefficient is demonstrated. As a result of this work, a new material has been synthesized with a pyroelectric coefficient of 1.1 μC m-2 K-1. This represents a substantial improvement over the previous best coefficient of 0.5 μC m-2 K-1 for Langmuir-Blodgett multilayers of materials in this class. © 1992.
