The ultrafast processes of tetra-phenyl-porphyrin(TPP), tetra-t-butyl-phthalocyanine(BuPc) and nitro-tri-t-butyl-phthalocyanine (NtBuPc) have been investigated using the femtosecond time-resolved fluorescence depletion method. A sharp peak of the fluorescence depletion with delay time has been observed both for TPP and BuPc. An ultrafast two-photon absorption process has been proposed to explain the sharp peak observed. A long-lived fluorescence depletion has also been observed. It is causing by the stimulated-emission-pumping process produced by the intense probe laser pulse.
