Nonlinear optical absorption in thick media

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Nonlinear optical absorption within thick optical media is analyzed within the paraxial approximation, starting with the nonlinear wave equation for the optical field. Both irradiance-dependent and fluence-dependent absorbers are considered. An approximate solution for the transmitted optical power (and pulse energy) is shown to be useful within the strongly nonlinear regime.
