Polarization-dependent detection of Impulsive Stimulated Raman Scattering in alpha-quartz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We have, for the first time, stimulated and detected both the A- and E-symmetry Raman lines in alpha-quartz using ultrafast Impulsive Stimulated Raman Scattering. Using a heterodyne detection scheme along with a Transient Grating set-up, we match the prediction of stimulated Raman theory. Experimentally-determined lineshapes will be presented and discussed.
