Paper Abstract

A numerical parametric investigation using a 2-level factorial design of experiments was performed to determine the effect of the f-number, sample position, sample thickness and the number of passes through the nonlinear optical sample on the beam transmittance through an optical system and on the threshold intensity. Calculated temperature profiles and excited state population dynamics are also reported. These results describe trends that are used in making decisions during the design process.
