ABSTRACT
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 (χ(2) and χ(4)). The magnitude and phase of the fourth-order electronic susceptibility χ(4) of the medium with respect to χ(2) are determined. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
