Radial axis depicts the amplitude of the wave packet aligned along a given laboratory angle, θ, defined relative to the θ = 0° alignment of linearly polarized impulsive pump and Stokes pulses. Color scale corresponds to time-dependent accumulated phase associated with each laboratory orientation. Distributions shown in (e) and (g) are scaled 10-fold.

Abstract

A narrowband, time-asymmetric probe pulse is introduced into the hybrid femtosecond/picosecond rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (fs/ps RCARS) technique to provide accurate and precise single-shot, high-repetition-rate gas-phase thermometric measurements. This narrowband pulse—generated by inserting a Fabry-Pérot étalon into the probe-pulse beam path—enables frequency-domain detection of pure-rotational transitions. The unique time-asymmetric nature of this pulse, in turn, allows for detection of resonant Raman-active rotational transitions free of signal contamination by nonresonant four-wave-mixing processes while still allowing detection at short probe-pulse delays, where collisional dephasing processes are negligible. We demonstrate that this approach provides excellent single-shot thermometric accuracy (<1% error) and precision (∼2.5%) in gas-phase environments.
