Paper Abstract

We use a Ginzburg-Landau Phenomenological model to calculate the nonlinear optical response from superconducting microparticles embedded in a transparent dielectric material. Specifically, we predict a strong frequency dependence of the nonlinear optical susceptibility and a nonlinear change in the transmission coefficient in the JR to microwave region. Also, we predict a field-intensity--dependent renormalization of the transition temperature and third harmonic generation in the JR to microwave regime below the transition temperature.
