We report the exploitation of a one-laser-shot measurement technique to study photo-induced effects in semiconductor-doped glasses. The technique, based on the use of a phase object in a 4f coherent imaging system, allows one to characterize the kinetics of the nonlinear refractive index of samples versus the light exposure time.
