Abstract
We report on the nonlinear optical (NLO) transmittance and reflectance of a 20 nm-thick Ag film characterized by time-resolved white-light continuum pump-probe experiments. The change in complex permittivity Δε(t) is extracted and is fitted to the Drude model in the frequency domain and a two-temperature model in the time domain. A unified model is presented that fully describes the dynamic NLO response of a thin Ag film that can be incorporated easily into the modeling of more complex metal-dielectric multilayer structures designed to take advantage of the NLO response of Ag.
