Abstract

We study interference between a local oscillator and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering signal fields by controlling their relative phase and amplitude. This control allows direct observation of the real and imaginary components of the third-order nonlinear susceptibility ( χ ( 3 ) ) of the sample. In addition, we demonstrate that the heterodyne method can be used to amplify the signal.
