Abstract

We modify the well-known photothermal beam deflection technique to study ultrafast nonlinearities. Using phase-sensitive detection we directly measure the temporal and polarization dynamics of nonlinear refraction (NLR) with sensitivity to optically induced phase changes of approximately λ/20,000. We use the relative polarization dependence of excitation and probe to separate the isotropic and reorientational components of the NLR.
