A two-dimensional (2D) infrared spectrum of Mn 2 ( C O ) 10 is measured by using chirped-pulse upconversion (CPU) of the nonlinear signal field plus a reference local oscillator. By converting the spectrum to the visible, a silicon CCD camera can be used. The method offers an attractive alternative to direct IR detection due to the technological maturity of silicon and its greater intrinsic detectivity over HgCdTe. Using CPU, we acquired a rephasing 2D IR spectrum in a few seconds.
