Time-resolved Kerr transmitted signal of 4BCMU-PDA and CS2 using 500-fsec laser pulses. The vertical axis is the transmitted signal, and the horizontal axis is the delay time between the pump and the probe pulses. A complete curve was scanned over 2000 shots. The time constant of the boxcar average was set at 1 sec. The solid curve is a 0.1% 4BCMU-PDA in a CH2Cl2 Kerr gate, and the dotted curve is a CS2 Kerr gate.

Fig. 2

Resonant and nonresonant Kerr transmitted signals of 0.1% 4BCMU-PDA in CH2Cl2 using an 8-psec laser pulse. The vertical axis is the normalized Kerr signal in logarithmic scale. Each data point was an average of ~5 shots. The solid curve is an eye-guided drawing of resonant enhanced Kerr signal using a 530-nm pump wavelength. The dashed curve is an nonresonant Kerr signal using a 1060-nm pump wavelength. The pump-pulse energy of the nonresonant condition was ~30 times larger than that of the resonant condition. The rise time for both signal curves is ~3 psec, which is unresolved because of the incident 8-psec FWHM laser pulse. The decay-time slope of the solid curve at resonant condition is 6 psec, which corresponds to a 2 × 6 psec = 12-psec relaxation process. The decay slope of the dashed nonresonance curve is ~3 psec, which is unresolved from this glass laser setup.

Peak-induced phase retardation and Kerr transmitted signal as a function of the absorption coefficient at an arbitrary pump I1. The solid curve is a calculated peak-induced phase retardation, δϕ(0) = (2π2)Il[1 − exp(−α1L)]. The dotted curve is a calculated Kerr transmitted signal from expression (7): I(0) ~ [1 − exp(−α-L)]exp(−αL)I12I2.
