    Abstract

    In the present work we report on the investigation of the nonlinear optical properties of some newly synthesized [60]fullerene-porphyrin dyads exhibiting important charge-transfer character by means of the Z-scan technique employing 532 nm laser pulses from a 4 ns Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. The third-order susceptibility (χ(3)) and the second hyperpolarizability (γ) values of the studied derivatives have been determined. The present results have shown a significant enhancement of the nonlinear optical properties of [60]fullerene-porphyrin complexes compared to the unfunctionalized [C 60]fullerene due to the formation of charge transfer intermediates.
