A dual-pump, electronic-resonance-enhanced coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) technique for the measurement of minor species concentrations has been demonstrated. The frequency difference between a visible Raman pump beam and Stokes beam is tuned to a vibrational Q-branch Raman resonance of nitric oxide (NO) to create a Raman polarization in the medium. The second pump beam is tuned into resonance with rotational transitions in the (1,0) band of the A[sup 2]Σ[sup +]–X[sup 2]Π electronic transition at 236 nm, and the CARS signal is thus resonant with transitions in the (0,0) band. We observe significant resonant enhancement of the NO CARS signal and have obtained good agreement between calculated and experimental spectra. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
