Paper Abstract

A novel sensitive and easy in operation technique based on nonlinear polarization transformation at nondegenerate in polarization two-wave-mixing interaction in a macroscopically isotropic nonlinear medium is analyzed theoretically and demonstrated experimentally for diagnostics of the third-order nonlinear response of materials on bacteriorhodopsin. The technique is shown to be an effective tool for obtaining information about the real and imaginary parts of the third-order nonlinear index and some other parameters of a nonlinear material.
