Abstract

The third-harmonic optical susceptibility, χ(3)(3ω;ω,ω,ω), of a silicate glass ceramic containing sodium niobate nanocrystals was measured for incident broadband light with central frequency ω corresponding to 1900nm. Absolute values of |χ(3)| and the dispersion of the refractive index from 600 to 1900nm were measured using the spectrally resolved femtosecond Maker fringes technique. The experiments show that |χ(3)| is 1 order of magnitude larger than silica, and it grows by 50% when the volume fraction occupied by the nanocrystals increases up to 40%.
