Abstract

The temporal and spectral profiles of supercontinuum radiation generated from a photonic crystal fiber are evaluated with a polarization-gate frequency-resolved optical gating technique. The supercontinuum is then applied to coherent inverse Raman spectroscopy. A stimulated Raman signal of cyclohexane is observed as an induced absorption signal with an instantaneous response. The Raman signal has a peak at a slight negative delay time, which is explained by perturbed Raman-induced coherence.
