Measurement of pulse asymmetry by three-photon-absorption autocorrelation in a GaAsP photodiode

Abstract

Three-photon absorption in a GaAsP photodiode is used for what is believed to be the first time for nonlinear optical autocorrelation at wavelengths from 1.4 to 1.6 µm. Theoretical intensity dependence and contrast ratios are achieved, and the ratio of the three- to the two-photon-absorption coefficient is measured. Finally, it is demonstrated that pulse asymmetry can be measured with no direction-of-time ambiguity by use of unbalanced three-photon-absorption autocorrelation.
