J aggregates cyanine dyes have been successfully doped directly in sol-gel derived silicate thin films. The films are transparent, homogeneous and stable at room temperature. The J aggregates successfully incorporated in rigid SiO2 framework were characterized by absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy. The films are expected to be useful for non-linear optical devices, multiple photon recording and photoelectric cell.
