Paper Abstract

Experimental results on the transient optical nutation effect inside an acetylene-filled hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (HC-PCF) are reported. The experiments used 15 ns optical pulses with peak powers up to 5 W. The light wavelength was centered at 1530.37 nm, which corresponds to the P9 acetylene (12C2H2) vibrational-rotational absorption line. The gas pressure inside the PCF, with hollow core diameter of ∼10.3 μm, was kept around 0.12 Torr. Comparison of the experimental data with numerical simulations using the Maxwell-Bloch equations allowed us to evaluate the characteristic longitudinal and transverse relaxation times around 10 ns, as well as the transition dipole moment (1.36 × 10−32 Cm).
