Paper Abstract

Third harmonic generation (THG) in dielectric films with femtosecond laser pulses is used to study properties of dielectric thin films and stacks thereof below and above the 1-on-1 laser damage threshold. Deviations from the ideal cubic relationship between third-harmonic signal and incident fundamental fluence are a result of several fundamental processes. Their relative contributions are assessed by comparing results from LIDT and conversion efficiency measurements as well as beam profile and pump-probe studies.
