Abstract

Optically heterodyne-detected femtosecond Raman-induced Kerr-effect spectroscopy (OHD-FRIKES) was observed in neat cyclohexane. In this Letter, an examination of the effect of the Raman pump ellipticity on the multiplex OHD-FRIKES spectra is discussed. The Raman pump ellipticity scanned OHD-FRIKES results reproduce anomalous observables from previous OHD-FRIKES experiments and suggest new methods of tracking transient vibrational mode polarization in complex systems.
