Paper Abstract

An account is given of the first infrared vibrational photon echo experiments conducted in liquids and a glasses. The experiments were performed on the CO stretching mode of the solute tungsten hexacarbonyl (W(CO)6) at approximately 5.05 micrometers (approximately 1980 cm-1) in the solvents 2-methytetrahydrofuran, and 2-methylpentane (2-MP). In 2-MP, it was possible to observe the photon echo decay at room temperature and follow the temperature dependence from room temperature to 10 K. The photon echo experiments were conducted using the Stanford superconducting-linear-accelerator-pumped Free Electron Laser as the source of tunable ps infrared pulses.
