Abstract With accent on balk and surface properties, the influence of the carbon-containing nanostructures (fullerenes, nanotubes, charge transfer complexes based on them) on the optical, nonlinear optical and other physical properties of polymers, monomers and liquid crystals has been considered. The mechanical and spectral characteristics of «soft» materials of the UV and IR range and thin films polarizers have been discussed. It should be mentioned that the studied structures can be used in telecommunications, displays, lasers and biomedicine equipment.
Keywords: Fullerenes, nanotubes, conjugated polymers, liquid crystals, «soft» materials of the UV and IR range, laser-matter interaction, radiation restriction, photoconduc-tivity, photorefractivity
