Paper Abstract

A method for the measurement of the nonlinear refraction and absorption in optical materials studying the distortions of the wavefront of light beams is proposed. Using a one-shot CCD camera, the beam profile changes are recorded for different cell positions. Usual Z-scan, eclipse Z-scan and the total profile distortion signals can be extracted from these data. Proportionality between the measured total signal and the induced phase shift is demonstrated. A comparison between this signal and the usual Z-scan signal is performed.
