ABSTRACT
We show that the imaginary parts of higher-order optical nonlinearities and their decay times can be determined by a time-intensity domain analysis of the conventional transient absorption data. Using this method we have measured the values and decay times of third, fifth and seventh-order nonlinear susceptibilities of silver nanoplatelets in water. The origin of these higher-order nonlinearities is explained using a two-temperature model.

    We propose an optical fiber which has very low dispersion loss (typically ~ 6.7 ps/km at 1,550 nm) that can be achieved by doping Ag nanoparticle into the core glass. At low absorption loss approximation, dispersion free propagation can be achieved up to 64 km for a 20 ps pulse. Enhanced third...
