Paper Abstract

We report here an experimental result for the non-linear refractive index of a CdSSe-doped fiber measured at 1313 nm. The semiconductor is in the form of nano-spherical particles randomly scattered in the glass host. The linear properties of the fiber have been reported. The approach for the measurement of the nonlinear refractive index follows the Z-scan method developed by Sheik-Bahae et al. The set-up measures the transmittance of the sample as a function of the position of the sample as it traverses through the foal point of the illuminating 1313 nm laser radiation.
