Paper Abstract

We present here predictions for a nonlinear optical response of nanocomposites having a layered structure. In particular, we have studied nanocomposites with alternating thin layers of titanium dioxide and nonlinear optical polymers (PT10 and PDHS). It is demonstrated that both enhancement in magnitude and change in spectral properties of the degenerate third-order nonlinear susceptibility can be tailored in such composites.
