Abstract

Diffractive optics are applied to six-wave mixing processes to provide a single optic approach to attaining the required, relatively complex, phase-matching geometry to discriminate against lower-order nonlinear responses. The diffractive optics were designed specifically for broad-bandwidth operation and passive phase locking of the appropriate pulse pairs for use in femtosecond two-dimensional Raman studies of the dynamic structure of liquids. The fifth-order signal was studied in liquid CS2; two different colors were used for the excitation and the probe to reduce background scatter, as were two different phase-matching geometries with different degrees of suppression of cascaded third-order processes.
