9 Conclusions Acknowledgements See poster for details
We show that the perturbation theory applied for two-level system quantitatively predicts the 2PA cross sections in dipolar molecules, provided that the necessary molecular parameters such as transition- and permanent dipole moments are independently measured. In most cases, the discrepancy between theory and experiment was less than 20%, and always less than 50%. This is the first time that such direct quantitative correspondence is demonstrated for a wide range of dipolar molecules. The overall significance of this work demonstrates a practical way how a set of relatively straightforward linear spectroscopic measurements can be used to study and predict nonlinear 2PA properties.
