SELECTION OF PATHWAYS AND PHASE-MATCHING The direction of the outgoing wave in a nonlinear experiment is determined by the wave vector kp of the induced polarization, which depends on the directions 16 robin m. hochstrasser and frequencies of the driving fields. In all experiments the outgoing signal field with wave vector ks propagates along the vector sum of the ingoing wave vectors for the nonlinear effect, and it is maximized in intensity when responsible  ks À kp  ¼ 0. The situation with pulses having different frequencies   requires care because the phase mismatch ks À kp  depends on which frequencies are observed.

The first application of these types of correlation functions to vibrational spectra concerned the asymmetric stretching mode of the azide ion [40]. In that example the gðtÞ had the form of Eq. (55) with an additional constant term. Recently there was a discussion of the applicability of separated time-scale models [84]. The response functions given above given here may be applicable to many vibrational problems. However, in all the foregoing examples the instantaneous frequencies along t and t are simply the resonant frequencies.

However, as s approaches zero the time constant becomes 12 g and the signal then peaks at t ¼ 0. The limits are most readily seen from the second integral in (23) since exp½Às2 ðt À tÞ2 Š only exists for t % t in the limit of large s, while for very small s/g the integral is an exponential decay with time constant 12g. For many vibrational systems the dynamics are more complex than assumed in this simple example as discussed later. The spectrum of the conventional echo is obtained by recording the absolute square of each frequency component in the frequency average of (21), obtained by Fourier dynamical models for two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy 15 transforming the emitted signal with a monochromator followed by square law detection of each frequency component.
