Paper Abstract

Four-wave mixing spectroscopy is presented as a convenient and effective optical method for the study of excited-state optical storage properties and nonlinear mechanisms in a dye-doped polymer film. The dynamic processes of optical storage properties and the efficiency of the diffraction grating are discussed. Backward-scattering four-wave mixing and forward-scattering four-wave mixing optical configurations are presented. A simple energy-level model is used to explain the excited-state optical storage mechanism, resulting from photo-induced excited-state population grating and trans-cis isomer grating.
