Abstract
Interferometric coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (ICARS) using non-transform-limited broadband ns-dye lasers is used for time-resolved measurements of vibrational frequency and dephasing time of solutions of bis-(dimethylamino)heptamethinium iodide and all-trans- (beta) -carotene. The results are compared with those obtainable from conventional narrowband scanning CARS. The intensity of the strongest Raman lines of all-trans-(beta) - carotene (1523 cm-1 and 1153 cm-1) decrease for a Stokes laser power density exceeding 1 GW/cm2 ((lambda) approximately equals 550 nm). ICARS reveals a simultaneous broadening of the 1523 cm-1 line from 11 cm-1 to 25 cm-1.
