ABSTRACT
We report experimental observation of the dependence of the fluorescence excited by two-photon absorption (TPA/E fluorescence) in dye solutions on the angle between the linear polarizations of two intersecting pump beams. Both degenerate and nondegenerate TPA/E fluorescence were studied with 4 ns pulsed tunable lasers as pump sources. We find that earlier theoretical analyses do not contain all of the observed changes in fluorescence signal with relative polarization angle.
