This paper is focused on discussion of various experimental techniques that are used to measure non-linear coefficients of refraction and absorption in optical glasses. These techniques are usually classified as z-scan and pump-probe like methods. Measurements at different wavelengths enable to study non-linear properties of highly non-linear chalcogenide(More)
Rubidium titanyl phosphate (RTP) is widely used for electro-optical applications at low switching voltages. RTP is nonhygroscopic and does not induce piezoelectric ringing up to the megahertz range. It has large electro-optic (EO) coefficients and a high damage threshold. We present here the EO coefficient wavelength dispersion measurements in the [550,950](More)
We demonstrate a tunable all-optical gating phenomenon in a single-section quantum dot laser. The free-running operation of the device is emission from the excited state. Optical injection into the ground state of the material can induce a switch to emission from the ground state with complete suppression of the excited state. If the master laser is detuned(More)
The process of photoelectron emission from gold surfaces covered with nano-objects that are organized in the form of a periodic array is addressed in the short laser pulse regime ([Formula: see text] fs) at moderate intensities [Formula: see text] W cm(-2) and for various laser wavelengths. The emission spectrum from a gold single crystal measured under the(More)
We investigate the electronic photo-excitation and relaxation mechanisms involved in the optical breakdown of potassium dihydrogen phosphate crystal (KH2PO4) and its deuterated form. The dynamics and spectroscopic properties of electron-hole pair formation are investigated using time-resolved measurement of the dielectric function, and luminescence(More)
Quantum dot lasers can lase from the ground state only, simultaneously from both the ground and first excited states and from the excited state only. We examine the influence of optical injection at frequencies close to the ground state when the free-running operation of the device is excited state lasing only. We demonstrate the existence of an(More)
We report on 400 nm broadband type I frequency doubling in a noncollinear geometry with pulse-front-tilted and chirped femtosecond pulses (λ =800  nm; Fourier transform limited pulse duration, 45 fs). With moderate power densities (2 to 10  GW/cm2) thus avoiding higher-order nonlinear phenomena, the energy conversion efficiency was up to 65%.(More)
The decay kinetics of the excitonic emission of CdWO4 scintillators was studied under excitation by powerful 100 fs laser pulses in the band tail (Urbach) absorption region. A special imaging technique possessing both spatial and temporal resolution provided a unique insight into the Förster dipole-dipole interaction of self-trapped excitons, which is the(More)
We present an experimental station designed for time-resolved X-ray Absorption Near-Edge Spectroscopy (XANES). It is based on ultrashort laser-plasma x-ray pulses generated from a table-top 100 mJ-class laser at 10 Hz repetition rate. A high transmission (10%-20%) x-ray beam line transport using polycapillary optics allows us to set the sample in an(More)
