Paper Abstract

We present the results of an experimental investigation of the nonlinear optical properties of boric-acid glass doped with the organic dye fluorescein. This material has a very large third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility of approximately 1 esu, which is shown to be electronic and not thermal in origin. Measurements of the tensor nature of the nonlinear susceptibility are presented.
