Presents analytical signal expressions for each two-color resonant four-wave mixing (TC-RFWM) scheme that can be used for double-resonance molecular spectroscopy in the limit of weak fields. Weak-field signal expressions for one-photon resonant TC-RFWM processes to interpret geometric (polarization) and relaxation (line shapes) effects in TC-RFWM.
