**Four Wave Mixing – a Mirror in Time Suzdal NLO-50(+) September 2011**

Yehiam Prior Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel Suzdal NLO-50(+) September 2011

4
It took a long time…. And in 1960 the LASER was invented: Soon to be described as a “solution looking for a problem”

5
Where was I ? th grade student in Jerusalem, deciding to continue my studies in the US Berkeley, looking for a Thesis advisor Options: Shen, Townes, Hahn post doc position: Nico Bloembergen – Weizmann Institute (ever since)

6
How does a laser work ? Monochromatic, Directional, Intense, Coherent

7
How does a laser work ?

8
Incoherent Coherent

9
Incoherent Coherent

10
**So, what can we do with these**

Coherent sources?

11
**Spontaneous Raman spectrum of CHCl3**

Direct spontaneous Raman spectrum (from the catalogue)

12
**Conservation of Momentum**

Four Wave Mixing (FWM) and Coherent Anti Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) Conservation of Momentum (phase matching) Energy conservation WRaman w1 w2 wAS 2w1- w2- wAS = 0 Dk k1 k2 kCARS Dk = 2k1-k2-kAS= 0

13
**FWM Applications included:**

Molecular spectroscopy Rotational and vibrational dynamics Solid state fast relaxation phenomena Photon echoes Combustion diagnostics Surface diagnostics Biological applications Microscopy Remote sensing …….

14
**Spectroscopy can be performed either in the frequency domain or in the time domain.**

In the frequency domain, we scan the frequency of excitation (absorption), or the frequency of observation (Spontaneous Raman spectroscopy), etc. Alternatively, we can capture the time response to impulse excitation, and then Fourier Transform this signal to obtain a frequency domain spectrum. We are always taught that the choice of one or the other is a matter of convenience, instrumentation, efficiency, signal to noise, etc. but that the derived physical information is the same, and therefore the measurements are equivalent.

15
**Time Resolved Four Wave Mixing**

A pair of pulses (Pump and Stokes) excites coherent vibrations in the ground state A third (delayed) pulse probes the state of the system to produce signal The delay is scanned and dynamics is retrieved

16
However, practically ALL CARS and Four Wave Mixing experiments were/are performed in the frequency domain. i.e. one is not directly measuring the molecular polarization (wavefunction) which is oscillating at optical frequencies.

17
**Combined Time Frequency Detection of Four Wave Mixing**

20
**Time Domain vs. Frequency Domain**

In this TR-FWM the signal is proportional to a (polarization)2 and therefore beats are possible

28
**1015 times faster, or in < 100 femtoseconds !**

However, this is a long measurement, it takes approximately 10 minutes, or >> 100 seconds. In what follows I will show you how this same task can be performed much faster. 1015 times faster, or in < 100 femtoseconds !
