Paper Abstract

In this paper the recent results of our studies of linear and nonlinear optical properties of a selected rotaxane are presented and discussed. The studied rotaxane can be processed into good optical quality thin films by vacuum evaporation. The linear optical properties of rotaxane solutions were studied by the UV-VIS spectroscopy and the nonlinear optical properties by the picosecond degenerate four wave mixing and Z-scan methods. The results show important rotational contribution to the nonlinear index of refraction.
