Study and optimization of new nanoscale materials useful for optoelectronic application have been considered. The search for the effective nanostructured materials has been revealed in two directions: to optimize the mechanical hardness of the inorganic systems and to increase the photorefractive parameters of the organics with nanoobjects. It has been testified that the surface mechanical properties of the inorganic materials via nanotubes treatment process can be drastically improved. For example, the surface mechanical hardness of the UV and IR range soft materials can be increased up to 3-10 times under the conditions of oriented nanotubes placement. It has been obtained that the nonlinear optical characteristics (nonlinear refraction n2 and cubic nonlinearity χ(3)) of the organics thin films sensitized with fullerenes or nanotubes can be increased up to 3-4 orders of magnitude in comparison with the same parameters for bulk materials traditionally used for nonlinear optics.
