Abstract

Reported is the observation of nonlinear gyrotropy of the aggregated colloidal silver solution, caused by the spatial dispersion of nonlinear response. In experiments, we measured the angle of self-induced rotation of the polarization plane of the pulsed laser source at λ = 0.532 μm and τ = 11 ns. The technique developed allowed to separate the spatial dispersion effect from the nonlinear rotation occurring due to local response of a medium. The latter was measured in the pump-probe configuration via inverse Faraday effect.
