ABSTRACT
Uses short 130 femtosecond light pulses to measure the transmission change under a strong irradiation of a Fabry-Perot-like CdS sample. Deducement of a nonlinear index; Measurement of the index in a time shorter than the electronic relaxation time; Use of the experimental method to measure the duration of ultrashort light pulses.
