Abstract
The evolution of the spatial profile of a thermal lens induced by a low-power laser beam in an absorbing dye solution is directly visualized in real time using low-coherence light interferometry. Both spatial characteristics and response times of the lens are measured. Comparisons between experimental results and thermal diffusion theory are presented. The resolution of the measured refractive index in the thermal lens profile is better than 10-6.
