Abstract : Since the basic phthalocyanine structure intrinsically possesses high thermal and oxidative stabilities, phthalocyanines incorporated into sol-gel glasses provide an attractive approach for realizing highly stable nonlinear optical media. Experimental results recently obtained for the nonresonant and resonant third order optical properties of metallophthalocyanines are reviewed in this paper.
