Abstract

Optical nonlinearities of periodically poled LiNbO 3 crystals were investigated by the single beam Z-scan technique with a continuous wave (cw) laser beam at 532   nm . The nonlinear optical absorption coefficient and refractive index change are determined to be 8.1 × 10 6 cm / W and 2.6 × 10 4 at 0.5 MW / cm 2 light intensity, respectively. Both sign and magnitude of the measured refractive nonlinearity are considerably different from the Z-scan results in congruent LiNbO 3 . The nonlinearities in the periodically poled LiNbO 3 induced by 532   nm continuous waves are believed to be mainly due to the photorefractive effect.
