Paper Abstract

valuable information on the interaction of an intense pulse with an absorbing medium can be gathered from a measurement of the reflected amplitude and phase as a function of time (in fs). Correlation techniques and algorithms have been developed to provide a complete (amplitude and phase) display of a fs signal. A sensitive method to study index nonlinearities is to use the large change in reflection occurring near critical angle. Picosecond switching and energy limiting has been demonstrated at the interface between glass and dye solution.
