Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical properties of perylene derivatives were studied by femtosecond Z-scan technique. 3,4,9,10-Perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (PTCDA), 3,4,9,10-perylenetetracarboxylic diimide (PTCDI), and perylene-66 (dibenzthiophenoperylene-N,N'-dicyclohexylimide), were studied. Tetrahydrofuran was used as a solvent for perylene- 66. The solubility of PTCDA and PTCDI is very poor. Their colloidal solution was prepared by the irradiation of the third harmonics of a pulsed YAG laser to opaque suspension of PTCDA and PTCDI. Transparent colloidal solution was obtained within 50 minutes of UV irradiation. Colloidal solution of quinacridone was also studied. Two-photon absorption cross sections of these dyes were measured by open aperture Z-scan method using a femtosecond laser. The dependence of two-photon cross section on laser wavelength was measured in the wavelength range of 780-820 nm.
