The preparation of transparent films consisting of one-dimensional tetranuclear platinum complex and an alumina gel was attempted. Characterization of the composite films obtained was performed by UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy. From the redox behavior of the complex in films, it was confirmed that the complex maintains the tetranuclear structure in the alumina gel, when the content of the complex is low. However, it seems to turn into another complex with a longer platinum chain, as the content of complex in the gel increases. The third-order nonlinear susceptibility χ(3) values of composite films was estimated from the third harmonic generation (THG) Maker-fringe measurements of this preliminary study.
