Abstract

The nonlinear optical behavior of silicon nanoclusters embedded on glass or quartz substrates is studied using laser ablation. In order to determine the nonlinearity of silicon nanoclusters, transmission and Z-scan experiments were performed. The results indicate that the nonlinearity is related to the size of the clusters: larger clusters absorb higher intensities, while smaller clusters show only the bleaching effect.
