Paper Abstract

Reverse saturable absorption by C60 and C70 fullerenes-doped 2-cyclooctylamino-5-nitropyridine (COANP)- toluene solutions and COANP-polyimide films has been investigated. The fullerene concentration was varied from 0.5 to 5 wt percent. The second harmonic of a pulsed Nd:YAG laser of 532 nm wavelength, overlapping an absorption band of fullerene-doped COANP, was used. For both COANP-fullerene solution and thin films nonlinear transmission was observed. Laser radiation attenuation exceeded at least by a factor of 6-7. The nature of optical limiting effect revealed in COANP-C70 system is discussed. It was established that the COANP-fullerene compounds could be applied for limiting power of about 5-6 J cm-2.
