Paper Abstract

Results of the experimental investigations of the nonlinear absorption of microsecond laser pulses in thin amorphous As2S3 films are presented. The optical transmission hysteresis at interband excitation of As2S3 films in a blue-green spectral region is reported for the first time. A reversible film photodarkening induced in the field of laser pulses was registered. It was suggested that the interband nonlinear light absorption could be explained by taking into account the light interaction with nonequilibrium phonons.
