R.W. Boyd, Z. Shi, and I. De Leon

Boyd et al. conduct a review on reported values of the third-order nonlinear susceptibility of gold. They observe a span of over three orders of magnitude and notice that this span is closely related to experimental parameters such as pulse durations. This may very well have serious implications on the nonlinear optical properties of gold.
