Abstract

We demonstrate a coherent vibrational spectroscopy based on molecular infrared (IR)-active resonance. We apply two femtosecond pulses (one in near-IR and the other in mid-IR) to generate the femtosecond time-resolved IR-resonant third-order sum-frequency signal. The mid-IR pulse is tuned to be resonant with molecular vibrations. This experimental configuration converts the IR light into a visible signal and exhibits high sensitivity to the vibrational mode of the molecule. The technique can be applied to acquire chemical information on various biological samples, including living tissues in their natural water-rich state. This approach can also be used to study the dynamics of IR-active vibrational modes, that is, measure the decoherence time.
