The paper overviews progress in the development of molecular media based on organic compounds possessing a high third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility. Such media are useful in the design of elements for optical data processing devices. TheX(3) values of polyconjugated polymers and organic dyes are presented; these depend on the film production method and molecular assembly organization. The review discusses nonlinear optical properties of metallic fractal clusters. The nonlinear response of a molecular medium is shown to be greatly enhanced by aggregation of molecules and by their location in a local field of a metallic cluster.
