The ultrafast third-order nonlinear optical properties of Zn Pc ( O Bu ) 6 ( NCS ) /dimethyl sulfoxide solution are investigated by optical Kerr effect (OKE) and pump–probe techniques with femtosecond pulses. Using C S 2 as the reference, the third-order susceptibility of the sample solution is obtained as about 1.40 × 10 14 esu at a concentration of 3.00 × 10 5 M . The second hyperpolarizability for the sample solution is deduced to be as large as 2.35 × 10 31 esu . The dynamic characteristics of the nonlinear optical response and the origins of the OKE signal can be attributed to excited singlet state populations.
