Abstract: We measured, within 6% accuracy, the nonlinear refractive index (n2) of 10 meter long multimode silica fiber of 17μm core diameter, using a modified induced grating autocorrelation technique (IGA). This measurement technique, based on time-delayed two beam coupling in a photorefractive crystal has been used to accurately measure n2 in short lengths of single mode fibers. For the first time to our knowledge, IGA is used to measure n2 of multimode fiber with a passively modelocked Nd:YVO4 laser operating with a dual-line near 1342 nm.
