Abstract: Laser pulses cross-phase modulated by strong single-cycle THz pulse is investigated numerically. It is found that the cross-phase modulation is mainly induced by Pockels effect and Kerr effect. These effects can make the laser pulses spectral shift, including red-shift and blue-shift, and broadening. And the duration of the THz pulse affects the cross-phase modulation greatly.
Keywords: Cross-phase modulation, THz pulse.
