Eclipsing Z-Scan Measurement Of Lambda/10(4) Wave-Front Distortion
Abbreviated Journal Title
We introduce a simple modification to the Z-scan technique that results in a sensitivity enhancement that permits measurement of nonlinearly induced wave-front distortion of congruent-to lambda/10(4). This sensitivity was achieved with 10-Hz repetition-rate pulsed laser sources. Sensitivity to nonlinear absorption is also enhanced by a factor of congruent-to 3. This method permits characterization of nonlinear thin films without the need for waveguiding.
