Maps sample optical nonlinear response. This technique is based on the conversion of a laser beam light with wavelength l into light with wavelength l/3, mediated by the nonlinear response of the sample. The instrument uses the Spectra-Physics Inspire OPO system that generates multiple (up to 4) ultrashort (100-200fs) optical pulses at different wavelengths within a wide tunability range of 490-2500nm.
