Abstract
In this paper two examples of application of the sol-gel method to the preparation of nonlinear optical materials are described. The first example deals with glasses or glassy-like materials doped with semiconductor quantum dots. The properties of the doped materials depend on the size and size distribution of the nanoclusters embedded in the matrix, which depends on the preparation procedure used. The sol-gel preparation procedures proposed in the literature are critically reviewed. The results obtained by the author in the preparation of semiconductor doped planar optical waveguides are described in more detail. In the second example the preparation of optical limiting materials obtained by incorporation of C60 derivatives are described.
