Abstract

A novel, angularly resolved excite-probe technique is used to discriminate ultrafast refractive and absorptive nonlinearities in interference filters and to determine the sign of the nonlinearity. The results explain observations of nanosecond switch-on and switch-off of optical bistability in ZnSe-based filters. © 1990 Optical Society of America.
