Third harmonic generation measurements of composite films of onedimensional polynuclear platinum complexes with poly(vinyl alcohol) were performed. The third-order nonlinear susceptibility x(3) of the tetranuclear complex was estimated. The (3) value of the composite film of octanuclear complex was obtained. This value is larger than that of tetranuclear complex. It indicates that the longsr platinum chain leads to the enhancement of their thirdorder optical nonlinearity.
