Dispersion of the nonlinear refractive index in sapphire

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The nonlinear refractive index, n2, of sapphire was experimentally measured in the 550–1550-nm wavelength range by use of a picosecond Z-scan technique. It was found that in this spectral region the value of n2 decreases monotonically from 3.3×10-16 to 2.8×10-16 cm2/W. An empirical expression for the wavelength dependence of the nonlinear refractive index in the 270–1550-nm range was obtained.
