Eclipsing Z-scan measurement of λ/104 wave-front distortion

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We introduce a simple modification to the Z-scan technique that results in a sensitivity enhancement that permits measurement of nonlinearly induced wave-front distortion of ≃λ/104. This sensitivity was achieved with 10-Hz repetition-rate pulsed laser sources. Sensitivity to nonlinear absorption is also enhanced by a factor of ≃3. This method permits characterization of nonlinear thin films without the need for waveguiding.
