We demonstrate that the Maker fringe technique can be applied to third order frequency mixing experiments designed to measure the electronic (chi) (3)(-(omega) 3;(omega) 1,(omega) 1,-(omega) 2) dispersion with (omega) 1 for a poly[3-tetradecylthiophene] thin film. Both the magnitude and the phase of the (chi) (3) were obtained. In the magnitude spectrum there was a strong three-photon resonance where the output frequency ((omega) 3equals2(omega) 1-(omega) 2) corresponds to the energy level of the first one photon state. We also found a peak which could be either a 2(omega) 1 or a (Delta) (omega) (equals(omega) 1-(omega) 2) resonance. Since this method is considered to be more sensitive to two-photon resonances that third harmonic generation, it can be used as a powerful tool to probe two photon states in the case of thin film polymer samples.
