This paper outlines the design and testing of a z-scan spectrometer capable of measuring the third order refraction index of liquids. The spectrometer underwent multiple redesigns, with each explored in this paper with their benefits and drawbacks discussed. The first design was capable of measuring the third order refraction index for glass, and found a value of 8.43 +- 0.392 x 10^(-16) cm^2/W for the glass sample, with the literature stating glass has a refraction index between 1-100 x 10^(-16) cm^2/W.
