Abstract

The dynamics of pulse transformation and free-carrier generation associated with the nonlinear propagation of 1030 nm and 300 fs light pulses in Gallium nitride film has been studied by use of pulsed digital holography with 25 fs temporal resolution. Domination of the Kerr effect at the leading part and electron plasma at the trailing part of the pulse has been identified from the reconstructed spatiotemporal phase-contrast images. Experimental results have been supported by the simplified numerical model capable to reproduce the main features of a dynamic process.
