Abstract

Three-photon absorption in a GaAsP photodiode is used for what is believed to be the first time for nonlinear optical autocorrelation at wavelengths from 1.4 to 1.6µm . Theoretical intensity dependence and contrast ratios are achieved, and the ratio of the three- to the two-photon-absorption coefficient is measured. Finally, it is demonstrated that pulse asymmetry can be measured with no direction-of-time ambiguity by use of unbalanced three-photon-absorption autocorrelation.
