|Abstract:||The third-order optical nonlinearities in undoped and Fe-doped KTA crystals have been measured using the Z-scan technique with femtosecond pulses at 780-nm wave-length. The nonlinear refractive index is determined to be 1.7 × 10-15 cm2/W and 0, 9 × 10-15 cm2/W for undoped and Fe-doped KTA, respectively. No two-photon absorption occurs in these crystals. It is shown that doping with Fe2O3 could weaken refractive nonlinearity of KTA, suggesting that Fe:KTA will improve the performance of KTA in high-intensity femtosecond laser applications. In addition, the measured nonlinear index of refraction in KTA crystals is about five times lower than that predicted by the two-band theory. One of the reasons for the discrepancy is given as the applicable limit of the simple theory in which a two-parabolic band model has been assumed in the analysis.|
