In a previous study, it was demonstrated that all previous measurements of the electronically nonresonant fifth-order response for the intermolecular motions in liquid CS2 are dominated by third-order cascaded responses. In this study, phase matching was used to provide significant discrimination against the cascaded responses, thus directly measuring the fifth-order signal. Additional discrimination against the cascaded contributions was also provided by using the tensoral nature of the response.
