The kinetics of optical limitation of the intensity of nanosecond laser radiation have been studied in solutions that photogenerate C60 -2 anion radicals formed by the action of laser radiation on specially chosen multicomponent solutions. It has been demonstrated that simultaneous limitation of subnanosecond radiation of the first and second harmonics of a YAG:Nd31 laser is possible, and it is shown to be promising to use molecular ion-radicals to improve the spectral and dynamic characteristics of fullerene-containing media.
