Abstract

The nonlinear transmission change of a weak beam in the presence of an intense beam is measured and analyzed in various absorbing and scattering materials. Simultaneous contributions of different nonlinear processes are identified. Addition of the nonlinear refractive-index change and Rayleigh-wing scattering contributions yields particularly large transmission changes.
