Abstract
The third-order optical susceptibility of magnesium sulfite hexahydrate (MgSO3.6H2O) single crystal is experimentally studied by nonlinear laser spectroscopy. Third-harmonic generation (THG) and two-photon absorption (TPA) in this crystal are examined within the 600 - 1500 nm range by picosecond optical parametric oscillator (OPO). Some important characteristics of the crystal such as the THG efficiency, the value of the cubic susceptibility χ(3), the dispersion of the third-order nonlinearity and the nonlinear refractive index (n2), are determined.
