ABSTRACT Investigations of nonlinear optical parameters of C 60 and C 70 ®lms and solutions by Z-scan method are presented. Nonlinear refractive indices on the wavelength of Nd:YAG laser radiation (k ˆ 1064 nm) have been measured. Two-photon absorption and nonlinear susceptibilities of fullerene-doped ®lms and solutions have been studied. Ó 2000 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.

    ABSTRACT: Nonlinear optical properties of (pi) -conjugated organic systems based on polyimide and 2-cyclooctylamino-5- nitropyridine have been studied. The nano-pulsed Nd lasers for holographic recording and optical limiting experiments has been used as irradiation sources. The drastic change of refractive index in the fullerene-doped structures in comparison with the fullerene-free systems has been observed. The nonlinear coefficients n2 and (chi) (3) for fullerene-doped compounds have been estimated. It has been shown that the fullerene-doped systems could be used as reversible real-time holographic materials and laser nonlinear absorbers with high laser strength.

    ABSTRACT: Results of theoretical studies of laser and Kerr nonlinear susceptibilities of vapors and solutions of organic dyes using a series of polycyclic arenes as an example are presented. Nonlinear susceptibilities of the third χ (3) (−3ω; ω, ω, ω) and the fifth χ(5) (−3ω; ω, ω, ω, ω, −ω) orders of a series of organic dyes responsible for third harmonic generation of Nd:YAG laser radiation are calculated within the context of the free electron model. Results of calculations of their Kerr third-order nonlinear susceptibilities χ(3) (−ω; ω, ω, ω) and non-linear refractive indices n 2 are presented. The calculation results are compared with experimental data on third harmonic generation in naphthalene vapors and with χ(3) (−ω; ω, −ω, ω) as well as n 2 of paraterphenyl and naphthalene solutions.

    ABSTRACT: The results of optical limiting investigations of cobalt-doped polyvinylpyrrolidone solutions are presented. The optical limiting studies have shown that this process is due to self-defocusing at the wavelength of 1064nm and also due to reverse saturable absorption and self-defocusing at the wavelength of 532nm. The results of measurements on the non-linear optical characteristics of organometallic complexes are presented.
