© The Royal Society of Chemistry.The dimensionality-driven two-photon absorption (2PA) enhancement effect is investigated in a series of functionalized bipyridyl Ru-complexes. Our design strategy leads to very high 2PA responses up to ∼1500 GM. However, we highlight that the 2PA performance vs. dimensionality correlation reaches an unexpected limit stemming from 'anti-cooperative' interchromophoric couplings. This journal is
