Abstract

We propose to employ the technique of femtosecond pulse shaping for improving the performance of the recently suggested method of complete characterization of molecular vibrations, in which both the amplitude and phase of the laser induced vibrational coherence are detected with high resolution. The amplitude-phase information is retrieved from the cross-correlation frequency resolved optical gating of Raman modes. By creating rich interference pattern in the measured two-dimensional spectrogram of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering we enhance the accuracy of the retrieved spectral and temporal response and increase the robustness of the method against noise.
