Comparison of Z-scan measurements using the Ti:sapphire (closed) and Nd:YAG laser system (open) at both 700 (black) and 1064 nm (green) and calculation using Eq. (17) (red curve) of n 2 , eff of CS 2 versus pulse width. Shaded region represents errors in response function from Table 1.

Comparison of n 2 , eff lin / n 2 , eff circ versus pulse width between Z-scan measurements with both Ti:sapphire (closed circles) and Nd:YAG (open circle) laser systems at 700 nm and calculated (red curve). The shaded region represents only relative errors that contribute to uncertainty. For long pulse widths, n 2 , eff lin / n 2 , eff circ = 3.5 .
