Paper Abstract

We present new femtosecond degenerate four-wave (DFWM) measurements on a C70 film in the wavelength range 0.9- 1.6 micrometers in conjunction with previously measured data in C60 and C70 in the ranges 0.74-1.7 (mu) and 0.74-0.88 micrometers , respectively. The new data reveal tow closely spaced peaks in the DFWM spectrum which we interpret as two-photon states with excitation energies of 2.41 +/- 0.05 eV and 2.64 +/- 0.03 eV. We relate these results to nonlinear optical spectra obtained by others in C60 and C70 films. In particular, we compare third-harmonic generation, electro-absorption and DFWM and emphasize the relative advantages of DFWM for two-photon spectroscopy.
