Van Steerteghem, Nick; Van Cleuvenbergen, Stijn; Shah, Noor Aisyah Ahmad; Humphrey, Mark; Verbiest, Thierry; Clays, Koen


Present-day methods for determining the performance of third-order nonlinear optical materials include Z-scan, degenerate four-wave mixing and third-harmonic generation (THG). All these techniques possess severe drawbacks; for example, in THG, since all media (air and glass walls of the cell) present a third-order effect, eliminating these contributions requires careful, complex analysis or use of vacuum chambers. We have developed nonlinear scattering as a sensitive, straightforward technique...[Show more]
