Femtosecond techniques permitting the generation of intense optical pulses tunable from the near UV to the near IR are presented. Implications for chemistry, biology, and solid-state physics are discussed. Specific cases are developed for applications such as the comparison of time-resolved polarization and absorption studies in photoexcited GaAs or malachite green in water.
