Glass embedded with silver nanoclusters has been used to record interference patterns of two 500-fs, 496-nm, laser pulses. The recording is based on optical heating of metal clusters and their subsequent motion in temperature gradients. Estimates of the kinetics of cluster motion and growth are in good agreement with experiments.

    In this paper, we report the observation of an induced dichroism in an ionic silver cluster-doped glass, under the interaction of a CW high-power (Pmax∼8 W) Ar+ laser beam. It is found that, as a result of the photo-thermal interaction, a dichroism due to the formation of chain-like silver...

    A theoretical model for the dynamics of rare gas atom clusters is developed which focuses on the motion of all particles and takes quantum effects into account only on the basis of effective rates. We demonstrate that similar characteristica of the energy absorption in metal and rare gas...

    We discuss the response of the H9+ cluster to an excitation by an intense laser beam. Calculations are done within the framework of TDLDA-MD, an approach which has proven to provide a robust tool for investigations in metal cluster dynamics. We first discuss static and low energy properties of...

    The self-focusing (SF) effect for concentric laser beams passing through As[sub 2]S[sub 3] glass was studied using a near-field scanning optical microscope. In the case of radially symmetric laser beams at the wavelength 633 nm, there was no special bright spot caused by the SF effect at local...

    The study of luminescence of high-purity multicomponent silicate glasses excited by radiation of a N[sub 2] laser (? = 337 nm, P � 12 kW) showed darkening of a sample and a monotone decrease in luminescence intensity and the transmitted radiation intensity from pulse to pulse. Additional...
