Abstract

A newly developed method for the characterization of the optical nonlinearities and dynamics is applied to Kerr liquids. The time-resolved pump-probe system based on the 4 f nonlinear imaging technique with phase object is used to obtain the diffraction pattern of the nonlinear filter induced in the liquid C S 2 placed in the Fourier plane by a charge-coupled device at various delay times. A theory based on two-beam coupling in perpendicular linear polarizations is used to interpret the measurement results. Good agreement is obtained between theory and experiment, suggesting a new method for simultaneous measurements of both magnitude and sign of the intensity-dependent refractive index as well as the dynamics of the Kerr liquids.
