Paper Abstract

Most of the known methods to measure the nonlinear optical properties of materials deal with the bulk properties, while there are many demanding applications which require those measurements to be done on a single particle or a single molecule. We report a novel application of nonlinear optics to measure third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility of nanoparticles in solutions. By measuring the power of the third-harmonic generated in a diluted solution of nanoparticles, both the size and χ3 can be extracted from a simple set of measurements.
