Abstract

The third-order optical nonlinearities of oligomers, dendrimers and polymers were studied by using Z-scan technique. A substantial shifts in the nonlinear properties were observed due to the solvents used in the investigation. The results showed little effect of the environment on the nonlinear optical properties of the materials.
