Paper Abstract

With several different glasses for nonlinear optical materials we first observed the far field multiple-ring fringes in them using a cw Ar+ laser as a light source at 514.5 nm and 488.0 nm, respectively. The central brightness of multiple-ring fringes could be controlled through changing incident power or the sample position near the focus. This phenomenon is considered as a result of spatial self-phase modulation caused from self-focusing. The thresholds of fringes and the thresholds of laser damage in three kinds of glasses are different from one another. Moreover, the far-field fringes of reflecting light were watched carefully. The light power limiter of optical density D equals log 1/T(lambda ) equals (infinity) can be constructed with the phenomenon.
