Z-Scan: A Tool to Explore Third Order Nonlinearity

This short note breifly discuss about the optical nonlinearity and way to characterize it. To an extend methodology, experimental setup and physics behind the z-scan results are discussed.


This handout I prepared to send to a friend, who wish to start his endevour in DFT. (Later, he changed his decision!). Whoever wonder what is DFT, this very short note may (or may not) help.

M. Sc. Materials Science Record

This is the bare minimum record for materials science laboratory. (Note: This was prepared when I handled M.Sc. Materials Science Lab in Bharathidasan University).
