Abstract

We show both theoretically and experimentally by degenerate four-wave mixing that the combined processes of optical rectification and the linear electro-optic effect contribute to the large effective third-order susceptibilities 14χ3CS2 of the organic salt 4N,N^dimethylamino4N-methylstilbazolium toluenepsulfonate (DAST). Furthermore, the knowledge of the cascaded contributions was used to determine absolute values of the third-order susceptibilities as well as their sign.
