Z-Scan Measurement For The Thermo-Optic Coefficient and Transmitted Beam Profile Of 1.8-Dihydroxy-Naphthalin-3, 6 Disulfonic Acid-[2-(4-azo)]-N-(5-Methyl-3-Isoxazolyl)-Benzene Sulfonamide

Hussain A. Badran


The nonlinear optical properties of an azo dye (1.8-Dihydroxy-naphthalin-3, 6 disulfonic acid- [2- (4-azo)]-N-(5-methyl-3-isoxazolyl)-benzene sulfonamide) are studied by using z-scan and diffraction ring technique with continuous wave (cw) laser at a wavelength of 532 nm. The obtained results for the nonlinear refractive index , , and the thermo-optic coefficients , , are found to be of the order of Wcm-2 and  K-1 respectively. The transmitted beam profiles, the distribution of intensity corresponding to the sample positions and D- distribution of rings number of each pattern variation for the azo dye samples have been studied. These results indicate that the azo dye is a promising candidate for applications in nonlinear optical devices.

Keywords: Nonlinear refractive index, Thermo-optic coefficients, Diffraction ring.
