Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering is a powerful nonlinear optical spectroscopic technique primarily used in chemistry and biology for detection and diagnostics by excitation and probing of coherent molecular vibrations. Despite many advantages, there are certain limitations to the application of this technique due to the existence of the non-resonant four-wave mixing contamination. This issue is addressed here by offering the time-resolved exact solutions with all Gaussian input pulses. The…

Distinguishing Resonant from Non-Resonant Nonlinear Optical Processes Using Intensity–Intensity Correlation Analyses

This work adapts a quantitative analytical tool by introducing one-dimensional and two-dimensional intensity–intensity correlation functions in terms of a new variable (probe pulse delay) and a new perturbation parameter (Probe pulse linewidth) and holds a promising potential for industrial application, e.g., by extractive industries to distinguish hydrocarbons from water (non-resonant contaminant) by utilizing the one-and-dimensional correlation analyses.

Development of simultaneous frequency- and time-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering for ultrafast detection of molecular Raman spectra.

Because of the spatial separation of the CARS output signal relative to the three input beams inherent in a folded BOXCARS arrangement, this technique is particularly amenable to probing low-frequency vibrational modes, which play a significant role in accepting vibrational energy during intramolecular vibrationalenergy redistribution within electronically excited states.
