Abstract

We present measurements of the femtosecond nonlinear response of fiber waveguide materials, obtained with spectrally resolved two-beam coupling. This simple but sensitive technique provides all the parameters that characterize the third-order nonlinear optical response, including the dynamics. Measurements are made with nanojoule-energy pulses from a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser and a few millimeters of waveguide preform, without the need for drawing fiber.
