Paper Abstract

We present an improved method to measure the third order nonlinearity of materials. The principle is based on a pump/probe experiment using a Mach-Zehnder interferometer coupled to a CCD camera. Experiments are performed with fluoride glasses (PZG) and chalcogenide glasses. A comparison with the nonlinear coefficients obtained with the Z-scan technique is done and has led us to improve the detailed analysis of the Z-scan technique.
