A new pyrazoline derivative 3-phenyl-5-(4-N,N-dimethylaminophenyl)-1H-2- pyrazoline (PDHP) was synthesized using standard method. The structure of the compound was established based on 1H NMR spectrum. The third-order optical nonlinear properties of PDHP compound were measured using nanosecond Z-scan method The measured nonlinear absorption coefficient β is 0.27×10-10m W-1. The magnitude of third order susceptibility is Reχ(3)==19.94×10-13 esu and Imχx (3)=5.85×10-13 esu. These experimental results reveal that the PDHP may be a good candidate for optical limiting applications due to its reverse saturated absorption phenomenon.
