Abstract : The third order optical susceptibilities X(3) (-3w ; w, w, w) for soluble metallophthalocyanine derivatives were determined by optical third harmonic generation measurements of molecularly doped polymer films at a wavelength of 1907nm. The X(3) value of tetra-tert-butylvanadylphthalocyanine is larger than that of metal-free derivative. We demonstrate experiment on modes of propagating light wave in molecularly doped films which exhibit excellent optical quality. The enhancement of third order optical nonlinear susceptibilities in phthalocyanine compounds are discussed in terms of molecular structure and molecular packing.
