Removing cross-phase modulation from midinfrared chirped-pulse upconversion spectra

Abstract : We observe that narrow spectral features in mid-infrared spectra obtained by chirped-pulse up-conversion are strongly distorted by crossphase modulation between the mid-infrared field and the chirped pulse. We discuss the consequences of this effect on spectral resolution, and introduce a correction method that recovers masked lines. This simple correction can be applied either when the upconverted field is fully characterized, such as in multidimensional spectroscopy, or when causality can be used, such as in absorption spectroscopy, which we demonstrate experimentally.
