Paper Abstract

We measure the nonlinear refractive coefficient n2 in BaF2, LiF, MgF2, Al2O3 and diamond using the Z-scan technique at (lambda) equals 1.06, 0.532, and 0.355 micrometers . Two-photon absorption in diamond at 0.355 micrometers is also measured. The results are in good agreement with a two-parabolic band theory developed for semiconductors.
