Abstract

We present a method of measuring the absolute phase in heterodyne-detected transient grating experiments. The method permits direct and sensitive characterization of the amplitude and phase of the grating parameters. We also present a convenient implementation of this technique and demonstrate its efficacy in a cuprate superconductor.
