Paper Abstract

The large third-order nonlinearity of the organometallic polymers can be utilized in the construction of optical devices. The presence of strong nonlinear absorption and low linear absorption in the visible wavelengths makes these polymers ideal material for use in nonlinear optical thresholding devices. We present here a study of such a device made of organometallic polymers using picosecond and nanosecond laser pulses.
