Paper Abstract

Laser-induced grating spectroscopy on the picosecond tinie scale was used to characterize the nonlinear optical properties of CdTe and KNbO which have potential applications for optical limiting. The magnitudes and response times of nonlinear optical signals were measured and the results were used to understand the nature of the fundamental physical effects responsible for the nonlinear responses. Experiments were performed to demonstrate optical limiting through two-beam coupling, polarization rotation, and four-wave mixing.
