Abstract

All-optical processing of the entire vibrational spectrum was investigated by using a more complex and carefully designed probe pulse. The probe pulse was constructed containing contributions from several narrow spectral bands with controllable intensities and phases. Strong interference effcts were observed in the coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) which resulted from the presence of several spectrally separated probe frequencies. A scheme for nonlinear spectroscopy was also suggested, where the information from the entire spectrum could be collected into a single coherent entity through coherent control of the nonlinear process.
