Paper Abstract

Metallophthalocyanines (MPc) exhibit, among many useful properties, the abilty to protect sensors against short, intense pulse deleterious to efficient sensor operation. For the successful application of this optical limiting property, an important issue is the incorporation of MPc molecules in a matrix to fabricate a solid state system. We report here the study of different concentrations of Nickle Tetrasulfophthalocyanine (NiTSPc) encapsulated in silica xerogel matrix obtained by sol-gel technique. The resulted composites were transparent and homogeneously with appropriate optical quality. The trapping effect was check by the characteristic absorption bands of NiTSPc in the UV/Vis spectra. The optical limiting properties of the composites were measured at 532nm with 8ns pulses.
