Relationship between nonlinear refractivity and two-photon absorption has been studied for PbO–SiO2 glasses using a nonlinear Kramers–Kronig relation. Nonlinear refractive indices, which are determined with z-scan measurements, are consistent with those which are calculated using the relation from two-photon absorption spectra. This consistency suggests that large intensity-dependent refractivity in this glass system arises from resonant two-photon electronic transitions from oxygen 2p to lead 6p states.
