  1. Molecular Structure-Property Correlations from Optical Nonlinearity and Thermal-Relaxation Dynamics. I. Bhattacharyya, S. Priyadarshi, and D. Goswami, Chemical Physics Letters 469(1), 104–109 (2009) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: We apply ultrafast single beam Z-scan technique to measure saturation absorption coefficients and nonlinear-refraction coefficients of primary alcohols at 1560nm. The nonlinear effects result from vibronic transitions and cubic nonlinear-refraction. To measure the pure total third-order nonlinear susceptibility, we removed thermal effects with a frequency optimized optical-chopper. Our measurements of thermal-relaxation dynamics of alcohols, from 1560nm thermal lens pump and 780nm probe experiments revealed faster and slower thermal-relaxation timescales, respectively, from conduction and convection. The faster timescale accurately predicts thermal-diffusivity, which decreases linearly with alcohol chain-lengths since thermal-relaxation is slower in heavier molecules. The relation between thermal-diffusivity and alcohol chain-length confirms structure-property relationship.

  2. Decoding Coherent Information in Femtosecond Shaped Laser Pulses. I. Bhattacharyya, A. Dutta, S. Ashtekar, S. K. Maurya, and D. Goswami, CURRENT SCIENCE 99(4), 10 (2010) [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: We report here an experimental demonstration of a pulse decoding technique from spectral analysis of femtosecond pulses. This technique is based on a single-step Fourier domain inversion algorithm and shows the impact of the spectral window function on the retrieval of the signal pulse. Using two femtosecond laser pulses at 780 and 1560 nm from a fibre laser, we have shown that even when the spectral content of the reference pulse is far from a narrow band limit (as much as a quarter of its entire spectral content for our conditions), the single-step retrieval analysis using spectral windowing in the Fourier domain works efficiently. The enhanced signal levels possible due to the wider spectral window are critical in the unambiguous description of laser pulses, which would have potential application in the retrieval of comparatively weak and complex ultra-short pulses as is often needed in pulse shaping applications and coherent optical communications.

    Abstract: Effect of isotope substitution from the modulation of Thermal-Lens (TL) signals in binary liquid mixtures is explored using femtosecond pump–probe mode-mismatched Z-scan TL spectroscopy. Binary solutions of water and heavy water with pure methanol at various concentrations are used for the study, where pure methanol acts as the TL marker across the different samples. The TL signal is found to be effectively modulated by isotope substitution under the experimental conditions, indicating that TL signal depends on hydrogen bonding.

  5. Probing Intermolecular Interaction through Thermal-Lens Spectroscopy. I. Bhattacharyya, P. Kumar, and D. Goswami, The Journal of Physical Chemistry B 115(2), 262–268 (2011) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Binary liquid mixtures are studied using femtosecond pump−probe thermal-lens (TL) spectroscopy. Changes in the measured TL signals as a function of relative concentration of binary mixtures show that these result from a combined effect of physical and molecular properties of the constituent binary liquids. The experimental TL values deviate from the ones calculated from phenomenological equations. These, we argue, are due to an underestimation of the influence of molecular interactions when the TL signals are calculated by using physical parameters only.

  7. Two-Dimensional Imaging of a Second-Order Nonlinear Optical Process. I. Bhattacharyya and D. Goswami, Current Science 112(04), 830 (2017) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Spatiotemporal imaging of sum-frequency generation process through second-order nonlinear optical interaction in a nonlinear crystal under femtosecond pulsed illumination is presented. Two focal points in the spatial dimension that result from use of widely separated wavelengths (780 and 1560 nm) including their appropriate intensity ratios are captured accurately, emphasizing the sensitivity and robustness of this detection scheme. Most importantly, crosscorrelation width that is used as characteristic measure from such techniques remains constant at the two focal points. However, this highlights the critical role of nonlinear crystal position along beam propagation axis during such collinear intensity cross-correlation measurements involving different wavelengths.

  8. Spatiotemporal Control of Degenerate Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscopy with Delay-Tunable Femtosecond Pulse Pairs. D. Das, I. Bhattacharyya, and D. Goswami, Chemical Physics Letters 657, 72–77 (2016) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Selective excitation of a particular fluorophore in an ensemble of different fluorophores with overlapping fluorescence spectra is shown to be dependent on the time delay of femtosecond pulse pairs in multiphoton fluorescence microscopy. In particular, the two-photon fluorescence behavior of the Texas Red and DAPI dye pair inside Bovine Pulmonary Artery Endothelial (BPAE) cells depends strongly on the center wavelength of the laser, as well as the delay between two identical laser pulses in one-color femtosecond pulse-pair excitation scheme. Thus, we present a novel design concept using pairs of femtosecond pulses at different central wavelengths and tunable pulse separations for controlling the image contrast between two spatially and spectrally overlapping fluorophores. This femtosecond pulse-pair technique is unique in utilizing the variation of dye dynamics inside biological cells as a contrast mode in microscopy of different fluorophores.

    Abstract: We report here an experimental demonstration of a pulse decoding technique from spectral analysis of femtosecond pulses. This technique is based on a single-step Fourier domain inversion algorithm and shows the impact of the spectral window function on the retrieval of the signal pulse. Using two femtosecond laser pulses at 780 and 1560 nm from a fibre laser, we have shown that even when the spectral content of the reference pulse is far from a narrow band limit (as much as a quarter of its entire spectral content for our conditions), the single-step retrieval analysis using spectral windowing in the Fourier domain works efficiently. The enhanced signal levels possible due to the wider spectral window are critical in the unambiguous description of laser pulses, which would have potential application in the retrieval of comparatively weak and complex ultra-short pulses as is often needed in pulse shaping applications and coherent optical communications.

  17. Molecular Structure-Property Correlations from Optical Nonlinearity and Thermal-Relaxation Dynamics. I. Bhattacharyya, S. Priyadarshi, and D. Goswami, Chemical Physics Letters 469(1), 104–109 (2009) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: We apply ultrafast single beam Z-scan technique to measure saturation absorption coefficients and nonlinear-refraction coefficients of primary alcohols at 1560nm. The nonlinear effects result from vibronic transitions and cubic nonlinear-refraction. To measure the pure total third-order nonlinear susceptibility, we removed thermal effects with a frequency optimized optical-chopper. Our measurements of thermal-relaxation dynamics of alcohols, from 1560nm thermal lens pump and 780nm probe experiments revealed faster and slower thermal-relaxation timescales, respectively, from conduction and convection. The faster timescale accurately predicts thermal-diffusivity, which decreases linearly with alcohol chain-lengths since thermal-relaxation is slower in heavier molecules. The relation between thermal-diffusivity and alcohol chain-length confirms structure-property relationship.
