  1. Sensing the Molecular Properties in Methanol and Its Binary Mixtures Using Time-Resolved Thermal Lens Spectrometer. S. Chakraborty, A. K. Rawat, and D. Goswami, in 2019 Workshop on Recent Advances in Photonics (WRAP) (2019), pp. 1–3 [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Mode Mismatched Pump-Probe spectroscopic method was employed to examine the thermally induced nonlinear optical properties of methanol and its binary mixtures. The heat transfer mechanism in methanol and its binary mixtures with carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) at different concentrations of methanol is investigated. Methanol has the highest Thermal Lens (TL) signal, and CCl4 does not have any TL signal at all. However, the presence of CCl4 modulates the TL signal of the binary mixture. The time-domain shift in TL signal is observed for different concentrations of methanol, which indicates the unusual molecular behavior in the binary mixture.

  3. Two-Photon-Induced Fluorescence Study of Rhodamine-6G Dye in Different Sets of Binary Solvents. R. K. Gupta, S. Kant, A. K. Rawat, and D. Goswami, Journal of Fluorescence (2020) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: This study deals with the effects of different sets of binary solvents on the Two-Photon Induced Fluorescence (TPIF), a non-linear process, of the Rhodamine-6G (Rh6G) dye, which is a well-known xanthene dye. This work examines the importance of inter-molecular interactions, which results in the modulation of the TPIF of the Rh6G. In this work, we have investigated three binary solvent mixtures representing varying polarity and intermolecular interactions. Specific solvent mixtures used are methanol-water, methanol-dimethyl formamide, and methanol-chloroform. Since the solvent polarity across these binary solvents differs, there are significant intermolecular interactions in the binary mixture solvents, which modulate the two-photon process of Rh6G when irradiated with high-intensity laser light at 780 nm. In our studies, we find that Rh6G in the MeOH-H2O binary solvent has maximum red-shift and minimum intensity as compared to other pairs of binary liquids when the volume fraction of methanol decreases due to more extensive hydrogen bonding between the two components. Additionally, at 1:1 ratio of binary mixtures, Rh6G is found to have the highest TPEACS value for methanol-chloroform binary solvent and reason for that is related to the formation of weak H-bond networks between proton donor chloroform and proton acceptor methanol.

  4. Thermal Inflection Study of Methanol-Hexane Mixtures Using Time-Resolved Thermal Lens Technique. A. K. Rawat, S. Chakraborty, and D. Goswami, in 2019 Workshop on Recent Advances in Photonics (WRAP) (2019), pp. 1–3 [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Time-resolved thermal lens (TL) technique is used to measure the heat transfer in pure methanol and its binary mixtures with hexane. We used dual-beam mode mismatched pump-probe scheme where a femtosecond laser beam of 1560 nm was used as a pump beam, and its frequency-doubled 780 nm beam was used as probe beam. TL Signal decreases with increasing concentration of hexane in the binary mixture. On higher concentration of Hexane in binary mixture then we have found convective heat transfer mode was absent. At 40%-60% methanol hexane mixture, we observed a sudden curious jump in TL signal.
