Abstract

We report on the linear and nonlinear optical properties of the novel organic crystal 4 - N , N-dimethylamino- 4 - N -methyl-stilbazolium 2,4,6-trimethylbenzenesulfonate (DSTMS). The principal refractive indices n 1 , n 2 , and n 3 have been determined by a direct measurement of the group index dispersion over a broad wavelength range from 0.6 to 1.6 μ m . The linear absorption coefficients for light polarized along the dielectric axes have been measured in the transparency range from 600 to 2000 nm . DSTMS crystals show a large birefringence of Δ n = 0.5 and low absorption α < 0.7 cm 1 in the telecommunication wavelength range at 1.55 μ m . Furthermore, the nonlinear optical tensor elements d 111 , d 122 , and d 212 have been determined by the Maker-fringe technique at the fundamental wavelength of 1.9 μ m . DSTMS crystals exhibit a very large nonlinear activity with a nonlinear optical coefficient d 111 = 214 ± 20 pm V . Phase-matching curves determined from our optical data showed that parametric oscillation can be achieved in the wavelength range from 1 to 2.2 μ m with effective nonlinear optical coefficients larger than 25 pm V .
