Optical Properties of Selected Third Order Nonlinear Optical Materials

This chapter presents nonlinear refractive index data for several third order materials. These data have been extracted from several sources, including original references and secondary sources. Some very useful sources containing a considerable listing of materials and data can be found in Refs. 1-4. Chang [5] has surveyed materials for fast self-induced refractive index changes. Some of his tabulated data are incorporated here by permission.
