Examines the Aluminophthalocyanine (APC) and fullerene carbon 60 (C[sub 60]) encaged in silica matrices. Comparison of the absorption properties in doped xerogels with the reference solution of APC and C[sub 60]; Relation between C[sub 60] transmission and the incident fluence in a benzene solution.
