Paper Abstract

Novel nonlinear optical effects - photonic flame effect (PFE)1,2 and stimulated globular scattering (SGS)3 - have been discovered. SGS was observed both in forward and backward direction. Pure opal crystal, consisting of the close-packed SiO2 globules with diameter 200 nm, and crystal with pores, filled with molecular liquid, have been studied. Two Stokes components, shifted from the exciting light frequency by 0.4 - 0.6 cm-1, have been observed in SGS. Photonic flame effect consisted in the appearance of the few seconds' duration emission in blue-green spectral range under 20 ns ruby laser pulse excitation.
