This work reports on the singlet excited-state absorption spectrum of sodium-copper chlorophyllin using three distinct methods of Z-Scan measurement: white-light continuum Z-Scan technique ranging from 470 to 780 nm, tunable Z-Scan technique with femtosecond pulses (490-700 nm) and 532 nm Z-Scan technique with 100 ps pulse width. A transition from reverse saturation absorption (RSA) to saturable absorption (SA) was observed at 570 nm, and at 532 nm RSA was tested showing potential application as optical limiting device. Pump-probe technique was used to measure lifetime of the first singlet excited state (22 ps) and no evidence of triplet conversion was observed. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
