The induced grating autocorrelation technique, a technique based on temporally resolved two-beam coupling in a photorefractive crystal, was used to measure the nonlinear coefficient γ of three photonic crystal fibers (PCFs): a 30-cm long highly nonlinear PCF, and two large mode area PCFs of 4.5-m and 4.9-m lengths. The measurement used intense 2-ps, 800-nm (850-nm in one case) pulses from a Ti: sapphire laser that experienced self-phase modulation and group velocity dispersion as it travels inside the fibers. This technique was also expanded to measure γ and the dispersion coefficient β 2 simultaneously.
