Two dimensional magnetic and optical spectra contain information about structure and dynamics inaccessible to the linear spectroscopist. Recently, phase cycling techniques in optical spectroscopy have extended the capabilities of two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy. Here, we present a method to generate collinear pump/probe pulses at high update rates for two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy. Both fluorescence mode and transmission mode photon echo data from rubidium vapor is presented.
