Abstract

We measure the cross-phase modulation (XPM) nonlinear indices of optical materials resulting from the interaction of an ultrashort pump pulse at 800 nm with a weak ultrashort probe pulse at 400 nm through the direct measurement of the optical phase change, using frequency-resolved optical gating. The materials studied include fused silica (SiO2) , borosilicate glass (BK-7), β-BBO , and KD*P . This method results in a XPM nonlinear index that is in agreement with calculations based on nonlinear indices from previous self-phase modulation measurements.
