Abstract
Nonlinear absorption and refraction effects are of particular interest for areas like optical communication (all optical switching and limiting). Nonlinear parameters of ZnSe, GaAs and polythiophene (polythiophene/zeolite complex) have been the subject of investigation using an Cr: Forsterite fs laser source with an output wavelength of 1250 nm, i.e. in a spectral region which plays important role for optical communication systems. The obtained values of nonlinear refractive index and two photon absorption coefficient are compared to theoretically predicted values. Beside the original transmittance Z-scan technique a modified Z-scan technique, which allows the sample transmittance and fluorescence being registered simultaneously was employed. The results are compared with a previously introduced theoretical model15,16. We demonstrated, that the recently developed low bandgap conductive polymer polythiophene shows nonlinear absorption followed by the luminescence in the visible. In addition, there is a different behavior of nonlinear absorption and luminescence for polyalkylthiophene and polythiophene/zeolite complex which may be explained by the supramolecular complexation of polythiophene in zeolite.
