Two-photon absorption and optical-limiting properties of novel organic compounds.

The optical-limiting behavior and two-photon absorption properties of four novel organic compound solutions in tetrahydrofuran have been investigated. An ultrashort laser source with 0.5-ps pulse width and 602-nm wavelength was employed. The transmissivities of the various 1-cm-thick solution samples have been measured as a function of the beam intensity as… CONTINUE READING
