Two new nonlinear optic effects are observed in crystalline solutions of fullerenes in toluene and carbon tetrachloride. Both are provided by a self-clustering of the solute molecules and are referred to fullerene-enhanced Raman scattering and solvent-enhanced luminescence. The effects are induced by the excitation of charge-transfer states of the fullerene nanoclusters, which makes the latter act as amplifiers of local electric fields.
