Abstract
Time-resolved degenerate four-wave mixing studies were conducted on solutions of transition metal complexes using 35 ps and 1.2 ps lasers at 1064 nm and 597 nm, respectively. The structure of these complexes consists of a transition metal linked to two ligands of o- aminobenzenethiol or benzenedithiol in a square-planar configuration. This study explores the relationship between molecular structure and optical properties in these simple metal complexes. Structural alteration by metal or ligand substitution shows a pronounced effect on both the linear and nonlinear optical properties of these metal complexes. Several nonlinear optical mechanisms are discussed.
