Abstract

The nonlinear refractive index, n2 , of sapphire was experimentally measured in the 550–1550-nm wavelength range by use of a picosecond Z -scan technique. It was found that in this spectral region the value of n2 decreases monotonically from ~3.3×10-16 to ~2.8×10-16 cm 2/W . An empirical expression for the wavelength dependence of the nonlinear refractive index in the 270–1550-nm range was obtained.
