Optical Kerr nonlinearity and multi-photon absorption of DSTMS measured by Z-scan method

Li, J.; Rana, R.; Zhu, L.; Liu, C.; Schneider, H.; Pashkin, O.

We investigate the optical Kerr nonlinearity and multi-photon absorption (MPA) properties of 4-N, N-dimethylamino-4’-N’-methyl-stilbazolium 2, 4, 6- trimethylbenzene-sulfonate (DSTMS) excited by femtosecond pulses at a wavelength of 1.43 μm, which is optimal for terahertz generation via difference frequency mixing. The MPA and the optical Kerr coefficients of DSTMS at 1.43 μm are strongly anisotropic indicating a dominating contribution from cascaded 2nd-order nonlinearity.
