Group and phase velocity mismatch fringes in triple sum-frequency spectroscopy

The effects of group and phase velocity mismatch are well-known in optical harmonic generation, but the non-degenerate cases remain unexplored. In this work we develop an analytic model which predicts velocity mismatch effects in non-degenerate triple sum-frequency mixing, TSF. We verify this model experimentally using two tunable, ultrafast, short-wave-IR lasers to demonstrate spectral fringes in the TSF output from a 500 $\mu$m thick sapphire plate. We find the spectral dependence of the TSF…

Communication: Multidimensional triple sum-frequency spectroscopy of MoS2 and comparisons with absorption and second harmonic generation spectroscopies.
This work reports the first application of TSF to the electronic states of semiconductors by developing a simple model and globally fit the absorption and harmonic generation spectra to extract the JDOS and the transition moments from these spectra.
Triple sum frequency pump-probe spectroscopy of transition metal dichalcogenides
Triple sum frequency (TSF) spectroscopy measures multidimensional spectra by resonantly exciting multiple quantum coherences of vibrational and electronic states. In this work we demonstrate
WrightTools: a Python package for multidimensional spectroscopy
This work resolved congested states, extracting spectra that would otherwise be selection-rule disallowed, measuring coupling, and resolving ultrafast dynamics.


Nonlinear optics.
In this method, non-linear susceptibility tensors are introduced which relate the induced dipole moment to a power series expansion in field strengths and the various experimental observations are described and interpreted in terms of this formalism.

FFOCT is a novel tool for non-contact imaging of millimeter sections of the in vivo human cornea with cellular resolution and dimensions and shapes observed in FFOCT are in agreement with those seen in the conventional contact confocal microscopy.
