Nonlinear effects are consequence of interaction of height intensities of energy with the matter. Self-diffraction is nonlinear effect and rings are produced. We analyzed the increase of rings due to changes in intensity of CW Ar laser that modify the nonlinear refractive index. The Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) were dispersed on different solvents: a) water, b) ethanol, c) isoprophanol, and d) acetone. The concentrations were 10ml:1mg in all samples. The dependence between power and concentration of CNTs is shown.
