Paper Abstract

We report on pump-probe mode-mismatched photothermal lens experiments of metallic nanoparticles water solutions. We show that metallic nanoparticles colloids exhibit nonlinear absorption effects related to attraction or repulsion forces that result from the interaction with the electromagnetic radiation. Gold and iron oxide nanoparticles show a double peak Z-scan shape that is associated to the presence of attraction forces. We calibrate the experiment using the linear absorption values of the samples obtaining their corresponding nonlinear absorption coefficients.
