Abstract

Large nonresonant effective nonlinear indices that are due to cascading have been observed by Z-scan and CCD camera measurements performed on quasi-phase-matched LiNbO3. Positive and negative values of n2cascad were measured at temperatures symmetrically displayed with respect to the optimum phase-matching temperatures (2.39×10-13 and -2.37×10-13 cm2/W, respectively).

Intensity dependence of the nonlinear phase shifts -ΔΦZnSe obtained by fitting Z-scan data taken on a ZnSe reference sample (squares). The circles correspond to Z-scan results obtained on QPM LiNbO3 at 145 and 155 °C (see text for further explanation).

Energy dependence of the normalized beam diameter change w-w0/w0 multiplied by a scaling factor that depends on temperature (symbols), measured with a CCD camera at different temperatures (left axes) and the corresponding numerically calculated nonlinear phase shifts (solid curves and right axes). Inset: temperature dependence of relative beam diameter ratio w/w0 for three different energies (see the legend), showing clearly focusing and defocusing effects that are due to mismatch. The solid lines in the inset are intended for guidance only, to emphasize the behavior.
