Paper Abstract

The third order optical susceptibilities XIfli(-3w ; co, a, ) for PMMA films doped with a soluble metallophthalocyanine derivative are determined by optical third harmonic generation measurements at wavelengths of 1543nm and 1907nm. The x3 values are 6-7 times enhanced at resonant and nonresonant wavelengths, concurrent with an absorption change induced by solvent vapor treatment. The enhancement of third order optical nonlinear susceptibilities in phthalocyanine thin films is discussed in terms of molecular stacking.
