Abstract

We present measurements of intensity-dependent transmission (optical limiting), Z-scan, and time-resolved excited-state absorption, for several fullerenes and fullerene derivatives in solution, and for C60 thin films and porous glass composites. Specific derivatives investigated include the isomers 5,6 pheny1-C61-butyric acid cholesteryl ester (5,6 PCBCR) and 6,6 PCBCR. We report optical limiting results for several wavelengths in the visible and near-infrared. Excited-state absorption is measured from 500-1000 nm with
