Paper Abstract

A femtosecond continuum, with a bandwidth of 90 nm, has been used in a pump-probe geometry to investigate nondegenerate two-photon absorption (2 PA) from 660 nm to 570 nm, with pump wavelength (lambda) equals 620 nm, in hexagonal CdS at 300 K. A dependence upon probe wavelength and relative beam polarization is observed. The polarization anisotropy has allowed us to measure the relative magnitudes of particular (chi) (3) tensor elements. The nondegenerate 2 PA coefficient increases by a factor of about two from 660 nm to 570 nm. The anisotropy and dispersion are discussed in terms of a two-parabolic-band model.
