Paper Abstract

Here we report on some results of investigation of the physical mechanisms responsible for optical nonlinearity in cubic crystals with tunneling centers. The nonlinear susceptibility of the system becomes anisotropic under the resonant polarized photoexcitation of the intracenter electronic transition. This anisotropy manifests itself in the self-induced change of light polarization which may form the basis of the nonlinear polarization spectroscopy. We use this experimental technique for the investigation of reorienting FA and F2 centers in KCl.
