Abstract : This report summarises the results obtained in the project to date Fullerenes and Metallo-Fullerenes. This work was added in the course of the project when Fullerenes became available in larger quantities. Results are as follows: We were the first to observe and report optical nonlinearity of neat Fullerenes. We were amongst the first to report and quantitatively describe optical limiting in Fullerenes. We have studied the influence of metal substitution to control the nonlinear optical behaviour and improve optical limiting performance. The use of Fullerenes as optoelectronic material in solar cells was assessed. We have fabricated and investigated carbon nanotubes and find some unusual and interesting spectroscopic features.
