Paper Abstract

The nonlinear optical properties of sodium di-2- ethylhexysulfosuccinate (AOT)-water-isooctane microemulsions are studied as a function of reverse micelluar size. Extremely large nonlinear optical effects are observed far away from the critical temperature for phase transitions. We propose that this is due to a combination of electro- strictive and thermo-diffuse effects.
