Abstract

Nonlinear optical absorption within thick optical media is analyzed within the paraxial approximation, starting with the nonlinear wave equation for the optical field. Both irradiance-dependent and fluence-dependent absorbers are considered. An approximate solution for the transmitted optical power (and pulse energy) is shown to be useful within the strongly nonlinear regime.
