Abstract

Theoretical explanations of the kinetics of scalar and vector holographic gratings are developed, and experimental results are obtained in amorphous As2S3 thin films. The large nonlinear-optical susceptibilities are evaluated from experimental data in the vicinity of the fundamental absorption edge, and it is found that χ1111(3)3.2×102esu and χ1122(3)/χ1111(3)0.98.
