We theoretically describe and experimentally explore the real-time formation of gratings induced by photochemical deposition in liquids. Considering the diffusion and the surface adsorption on the deposit of photochemically produced molecules, we show that the pattern induced (1) is not necessarily an exact replica of the light intensity distribution and (2) can become thick. By implementing experiments with chromate solutions photoactivated by two interfering continuous wave Ar[sup +] laser waves, we validate the model by analyzing the temporal behavior of the first three harmonics of the induced grating.

These terms show a linear T dependence and can, through cycling experiments, be investigated in the temperature range of...

    Using a reaction-diffusion equation involving the one-photon excitation of a two-level system, we propose a rate equation that describes the late-stage growth of laser-induced photochemical deposits. With appropriate scaling, we show that the kinetics can be reduced to a single master curve for...

    Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) has been widely used to measure fluid flow and diffusion in gels and tissues. It has not been widely used in detection of tissue anisotropy. This may be due to a lack of applicable theory, or due to inherent limitations of the method. We discuss...
