Title: Effect of Sn doping on nonlinear optical properties of quaternary Se-Sn-(Bi,Te) chalcogenide thin films

The aim of this work is to report the effect of Sn doping on the third order nonlinear optical properties of chalcogenide Se{sub 84-x}Te{sub 15}Bi{sub 1.0}Sn{sub x} thin films. Melt quenching technique has been used for the preparation of bulk chalcogenide glasses. Thin films of the studied composition are deposited on cleaned glass substrate by thermal evaporation technique. Optical band gap (E{sub g}) is calculated by using Tauc extrapolation method and is found to increase from 1.27 eV to 1.64 eV with the incorporation of Sn content. Stryland approach is utilized for the calculation of two photon absorption coefficient (β{sub 2}). The nonlinear refractive index (n{sub 2}) and third order susceptibility (χ{sup (3}) are calculated using Tichy and Ticha approach. The result shows that nonlinear refractive index (n{sub 2}) follows the same trend as that of linear refractive index (n). The values of n{sub 2} of studied composition as compared to pure silica are 1000-5000 times higher.
