Seminar: “Cubic nonlinearity of organic molecules: the properties and methodologies”, Kenji Kamada
Thursday, August 9, 2012 / 11-12pm

Kenji Kamada
AIST, Osaka

Overview of the real and imaginary parts of the cubic nonlinear optical responses of organic molecular systems will be presented.  First, decomposition of the OHD-OKE response of organic liquids into the instantaneous and causal components and the relation to the electronic and nuclear nonlinearity is discussed with the time evolution of the response with different pulse durations.  Second, two-photon absorption properties of several organic molecules measured by the Z-scan method and some technical issues related the effects of induced Raman scattering and optical-intensity distribution along Z-axis etc. are discussed.
