We report the nonlinear optical properties of Ruthenium metal complex a promising organic material for use in scientific and technological applications. The thin films of newly synthesized ruthenium metal–organic complex were fabricated using spin coating technique. Z-scan and degenerate four wave mixing (DFWM) techniques used to extract the third-order nonlinear optical (NLO) parameters. The data reveals the investigated material exhibited relatively large NLO properties. The pump–probe experiments shows that the switch-on and off times of the material were in the order of μs at different pump intensities and the energy dependent transmission studies reveal good limiting property of the material in nanosecond regime.
