Abstract

The optical-limiting behavior and two-photon absorption properties of four novel organic compound solutions in tetrahydrofuran have been investigated. An ultrashort laser source with 0.5-ps pulse width and 602-nm wavelength was employed. The transmissivities of the various 1-cm-thick solution samples have been measured as a function of the beam intensity as well as of the solute concentration. The measured results can be fitted on the assumption that two-photon absorption is the only predominant mechanism causing the observed optical-limiting behavior. Based on the intensity-dependent transmissivity measurements, the molecular two-photon absorption coefficients for the four compounds are presented.
