Measurement of femto-second resonant nonlinear refraction in Nd:YVO4 by degenerate pump-probe spectroscopy

Luo, L. and Chen, L. and Qiu, Z.R. and Yu, X.Y. and Dai, D.C. and Zhou, J.Y. and Kuhl, J. (2001) 'Measurement of femto-second resonant nonlinear refraction in Nd:YVO4 by degenerate pump-probe spectroscopy.', Journal of applied physics., 89 (12). 8342-8344 .

Abstract

The resonant nonlinear refraction in rare-earth-doped solids is studied with femtosecond degenerate pump-probe two-beam coupling spectroscopy. The phase modulation induced by the pump pulses is shown to result in a significant contribution to the differential change of the probe transmission. An ultrafast resonant nonlinear refractive index of the order of 1×10−18 m2/W is measured in Nd:YVO4 crystals.
