Paper Abstract

Barium nitrate crystal are studied using one- and two-beam Z-scan techniques by excitation with the second harmonic radiation of nanosecond Nd:YAG laser and probing with the cw He:Ne laser. For the first time, a thermal lens due to the dissipation of energy of the SRS-excited Ag vibrational mode to the heat is observed and measured.
