Abstract
We are investigating various ways of switching the cubic optical nonlinearity of organometallics between different states. These switching events can be classified as nonlinear chromisms: the nonlinear optical analogues of well-known effects such as electrochromism, photochromism etc. We review here the most important results obtained by us so far.
