We report a compact, easy to align, and passively phase-stabilized setup for recording two-dimensional (2D) electronic spectra in three different phase-matching directions in the boxcar geometry. Passive phase stabilization is achieved by a diffractive optical element, the use of refractive optics for introducing pulse delays, and the use of common optics for all pulses. Representative 2D spectra correlating single- and double-quantum coherences in a molecular aggregate are presented.
