Hybrid materials for Optical Limiting


Materials based on alkynyl platinum derivatives and thiacalixarenes were prepared through the sol-gel process The molecular species were grafted to the matrix (class II hybrid) in order to maximise the concentration and the stability of the final solid-state material Broadband optical limiting performance in the visible wavelength region was observed in the prepared materials Thermomechanical characterisation of the matrix is also discussed.
