Nonlinear Optical Characterization of Borotellurite Glass of Composition 0.1BaO-0.4TeO2-0.5B2O3 by Z-Scan Method
Present work focuses on the study of nonlinear optical properties of borotellurite glass of composition 0.1BaO-0.4TeO2-0.5B2O3. Third order optical nonlinear coefficients of borotellurite glass have been investigated by using the standard z-scan method using 100 femtosecond Ti: sapphire laser at 1550 nm wavelength with repetition rate of 1 kHz. Nonlinear refractive index n2 was estimated to be 2.59 × 10−17 cm2/W. Nonlinear absorption coefficient β was found to be 0.3189 × 10−12 cm/W. Nonlinear susceptibility χ(3) has been calculated to be ~1.8329 × 10−14 esu.
