Five stable clusters sharing the cuboidal [Ni4O4] skeleton are subjected to third-order nonlinear optical (NLO) property measurements. Preliminary results suggest that the NLO property is largely defined by the cluster core skeleton and the directly coordinated atoms, with limited contribution from the heavy atoms peripherally attached to the aromatic ligands.
