Ultrafast nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy with mid-IR pumping and incoherent anti-Stokes Raman probing is used to study V ) 1 excitations of OH stretching (νOH) of water and of HOD in D2O solvent (HOD/D2O). The parent νOH decay and the appearance of daughter stretching and bending excitations are simultaneously monitored, which allows for(More)
Mixed frequency/time domain, two color triply vibrationally enhanced (TRIVE) four wave mixing (FWM) spectroscopy is used to study the methyl and methylene modes in octane and dotriacontane. The experiments involve scanning different combinations of the two excitation frequencies, the monochromator frequency, and the two time delays between the three(More)
Ultrafast spectroscopy was used to study vibrational energy transfer between vibrational reporter groups on different parts of a molecule in a liquid. When OH stretching vibrations of different alcohols were excited by mid-infrared laser pulses, vibrational energy was observed to move through intervening CH2 or CH groups, taking steps up and down in energy,(More)
Ultrafast spectroscopy is dominated by time domain methods such as pump-probe and, more recently, 2D-IR spectroscopies. In this paper, we demonstrate that a mixed frequency/time domain ultrafast four wave mixing (FWM) approach not only provides similar capabilities, but it also provides optical analogues of multiple- and zero-quantum heteronuclear nuclear(More)
Coherent multidimensional spectroscopy performed in the mixed frequency/time domain exhibits both temporal and spectral quantum beating when two quantum states are simultaneously excited. The excitation of both quantum states can occur because either the spectral width of the states or the excitation pulse exceeds the frequency separation of the quantum(More)
Triply vibrationally enhanced (TRIVE) four-wave mixing (FWM) spectroscopy in a mixed frequency/time domain experiment contains new output coherences that isolate nonlinear pathways that involve coherence transfer. Coherence transfer occurs when a thermal bath induces coupling between two states so a quantum mechanical entanglement of a pair of quantum(More)
Frequency-domain two-color triply vibrational enhanced four-wave mixing using a new phase-matching geometry discriminates against coherent multidimensional spectral features created solely by radiative transitions, spectrally resolves pathways with different numbers of coherence transfer steps, and temporally resolves modulations created by interference(More)
Triply vibrationally enhanced four-wave mixing spectroscopy is employed to observe vibrational coherence transfer between the asymmetric and symmetric CO-stretching modes of rhodium(I) dicarbonyl acetylacetonate (RDC). Coherence transfer is a nonradiative transition of a coherent superposition of quantum states to a different coherent superposition due to(More)
This review focuses on the intrinsic charge transport in organic photovoltaic (PVC) devices and field-effect transistors (SAM-OFETs) fabricated by vapor phase molecular self-assembly (VP-SAM) method. The dynamics of charge transport are determined and used to clarify a transport mechanism. The 1,4,5,8-naphthalene-tetracarboxylic diphenylimide (NTCDI) SAM(More)
Coherent multidimensional spectroscopy (CMDS) is now the optical analogue of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Just as NMR heteronuclear multiple-quantum coherence (HMQC) methods rely on multiple quantum coherences, achieving widespread application requires that CMDS also excites multiple quantum coherences over a wide range of quantum state energies. This(More)
