Abstract
Reported is the observation of nonlinear gyrotropy of the aggregated colloidal silver solution, caused by the spatial dispersion of nonlinear response. In experiments, we measured the angle of self-induced rotation of the polarization plane of the pulsed laser source at (lambda) equals 0.532 micrometers and (tau) equals 11 ns. The technique developed allowed to separate the spatial dispersion effect from the nonlinear rotation occurring due to local response of a medium. The latter was measured in the pump-probe configuration via inverse Faraday effect.
