Paper Abstract

The nonlinear optical properties of commercial semiconductor-doped glasses containing "large" particles being now reasonably well understood, attention is now focused on smaller particles clearly exhibiting quantum confinement. Nonlinear absorption measurements clearly demonstrate the important role of electron-phonon coupling in the broadening of the ls-ls transition. Spectral hole burning is observed at low temperature. Optical phase conjugation measurements confirm the expected increase in the nonlinearity due to confinement.
