The two-photon absorption and applications become the hot points in the recent photoelectronic material research field. The two-photon absorption materials can be applied to many fields such as up-conversion lasing, optical limiting, optical stabilization, three-dimension optical storage, three-dimension micro-machining, et al. Especially studies of optical power limiting have become more interesting to the research community because of the need for automatic protection of optical sensors against intense laser radiation. Here we report the observation of the TPA and optical power limiting property of a novel double conjugated molecule DSBDR1 in solution. The linear absorption spectral is observed using a scanning spectrophotometer. Using Nd:YAG laser pulse as exciting laser, the incident pulse energy and the transmitted pulse energy are respectively recorded by an energy meter. Then we obtain the nonlinear absorption coefficient of the novel double conjugated molecule in THF. Figures show that the molecule exhibts the large TPA cross-section and excellent optical limiting at 1064 nm. The nonlinear absorption mechanism of the novel organic compound is finally analyzed.
