Abstract

We use time-domain spatially and spectrally resolved interferometry to investigate cross-polarized wave (XPW) generation in barium fluoride. We find that the XPW pulse is 3 smaller than the input in the spatiotemporal domain, regardless of input chirp. Additionally, we calculate a temporally dependent focal length resulting from the nonlinear interaction and discuss its implications.
