Antisymmetric distribution of permanent refractive index change in β-BaB2O4 crystal under exposure of femtosecond pulses


We have observed unusual asymmetrical refractive index change as a result of femtosecond laser inscription in a crystal without center of inversion. Profile of the refractive index change exhibits sign turn within the domain of femtosecond pulse exposure.
