High sensitivity transient infrared spectroscopy: a UV/Visible transient grating spectrometer with a heterodyne detected infrared probe


Donaldson, Paul M; Strzalka, Halina; Hamm, Peter (2012). High sensitivity transient infrared spectroscopy: a UV/Visible transient grating spectrometer with a heterodyne detected infrared probe. Optics Express, 20(12):12761-12770.

Abstract

We describe here a high sensitivity means of performing time resolved UV/Visible pump, infrared probe spectroscopy using optically Heterodyne Detected UV-IR Transient Gratings. The experiment design employed is simple, robust and includes a novel means of generating phase locked pulse pairs that relies on only mirrors and a beamsplitter. A signal to noise ratio increase of 24 compared with a conventional pump-probe arrangement is demonstrated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
