    The generation of a femptosecond second harmonic in a bacteriorhodopsin solution is investigated. It is shown that the behavior of the harmonic can be explained by the coherent interference of several contributions from three- and five-wave mixing processes (?(2) and ?(4)). The magnitude and...
