Observation of both second harmonic and multiphoton absorption induced luminescence in ZnO.

By D.C. Dai, S.J. Xu, S.L. Shi, M.H. Xie and C.M. Che


The confusion over second-harmonic generation (SHG) and multiphoton-absorption (MPA)-induced luminescence in ZnO is observed under excitation with femtosecond laser between 800 and 1000 nm at room temperature. Excitation power dependence measurements show SHG is a two-photon process, and MPA is a three- or four-photon process. These are confirmed with interferometric pulse autocorrelation experiments. Excitation power density is a main regulatory factor for this confusion.\ud \u
