Nonlinear Optical Properties of Au Colloid-Doped Glasses


Degenerate four-wave mixing experiments have been performed for Au colloid-doped glasses prepared by melting and sputtering methods. The nonlinear optical properties of the glasses are discussed from viewpoint of the concentration of the Au colloid particles and the thickness of the glasses. We also discuss the dependence of the nonlinear properties on the pulse duration of laser for the measurements, and a very slow relaxation.
