Abstract

The ratio of the imaginary part to the real part of the complex nonlinear refractive index has been measured by transient two-wave mixing in acridine-orange-doped fluorophosphate glass, fluorescein-doped boric-acid glass, and ruby at argon-ion wavelengths. The method enables the individual signs of the components of the nonlinear index to be obtained. A simple theory based on a single homogeneously broadened absorption from the ground state agrees with measurements of the phase of the nonlinear index in acridine but not in fluorescein, where our data suggest that excited-state absorption plays an important role.
