Abstract

Gold nanoparticle embedded ZnO thin films have been studied at the fundamental and second harmonic wavelengths of a picosecond laser by Z-scan technique. The films exhibit the effect of saturable absorption and self-defocusing. Large value third order nonlinear susceptibility (108esu) has been observed at 1064 nm. Fast relaxation time measurements have been performed with the diffraction of the probe beam with laser-induced transient grating technique. Figure of merit values for optical switching applications have been obtained. One of the samples has been tested for passive mode-locking applications in combination with the standard saturable absorber, IR26.
