Strong optical nonlinearities in dispersive dielectric chirped mirrors below the damage threshold (JW6A.18)
Presenter: Guan Gui, JILA
We experimentally characterized a strong nonlinear response in chirped mirrors below damage threshold. We observed a strong reflectivity decrease, local heating, transient spectral modifications, and time-dependent absorption of the incident pulse.
