Abstract

Using the variable-frequency ellipsometric technique. This paper measures the total refractive index modulation as a function of the frequency of the applied electric field. From these measurements. It deduces the relative contributions of the poling birefringence, the Pockels, and the Kerr effects. By applying the oriented gas model, it determines the microscopic properties of the nonlinear optical chromophore, including the anisotropic polarizability, and the first and second hyperpolarizabilities.
