Abstract
An extension to dilute systems of the measurement of the non-linear refractive index by spectral analysis after non-linear propagation is presented. We show that one can deduce the magnitude and temporal characteristics of the induced nonlinearity in air and other gases. Our results obtained with femtosecond pulses are compared to those measured using much longer pulses.
