Abstract

An ellipsometric method for measuring second-order cascaded phase shift is experimentally demonstrated in a KNbO3 single crystal. We analyze the polarization state composed of the two orthogonal polarizations of the transmitted fundamental wave, one of which experiences intensity-dependent depletion and phase shift while the other does not. This method does not require a well-defined beam profile or interferometric stability.
