Droplets of hydrogen molecules were generated by the same method as that of He droplets. Hydrogen droplets thus produced consist of about 105 molecules with a temperature of about 4 K. We found that hydrogen droplets pick up phthalocyanine molecules in a pickup chamber like He droplets. Laser induced fluorescence spectra of phthalocyanine molecules captured by hydrogen droplets showed spectra similar to those observed for phthalocyanine-(H2)N clusters embedded in He droplets with N>1000, but the spectrum in hydrogen droplets showed sharper linewidth than that of phthalocyanine-(H2)N in He droplets. In addition, a clear dependence in the linewidth on the ortho -to- para concentration ratio was observed. We will discuss details of the observed spectra.
