Non-linear optical materials
Highly non-linear metamaterials for laser technology
Non-linear optical materials : 03 July, 2014
Non-linear optical materials are widely used in laser systems. However, high light intensity and long propagation are required to produce strong non-linear optical effects. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin and the Technische Universitaet Muenchen have created metamaterials with a million times stronger non-linear optical response, compared to traditional non-linear materials, and demonstrated frequency conversion in films 100 times thinner than a human hair, using light intensity comparable to that of a laser pointer.
