Paper Abstract

For the purpose of determining the higher-order nonlinear optical susceptibility the diffraction method based on investigation into the Fourier-expansion spatial components for the anharmonic grating of a refractive index has been used. Condition of the second-order Bragg diffraction is satisfied through doubling of the recording-wave frequency. This variant of diffraction method has been theoretically studied for the resonant media modeled by three- and four- level schemes taking into consideration the transitions between the molecular excited states. Experimentally, the method proposed for measurements of the higher order nonlinearities has been realized with the use of the six- wave mixing of monopulse YAG laser radiation in the solution of polymethine dye.
