Abstract

High-optical-quality polyurethane films containing a high load of (60) fullerene (C6060 were prepared. Optical nonlinearity was measured using the Z-scan technique in the wavelength range 1150-1600 nm. The technique so discussed is a new approach to obtain fullerene films with the capacity to realize a high number density of C60 moieties.
