Kerr Orientation Influence on Excited State Absorption Measurements

Menzel, Ralf; Rapp, Werner

The possible influence of a strong nonresonant laser field on the orientation of dyes in solution is discussed as a potential source of measuring errors in excited state absorption analysis. The results of investigations on some typical samples suggest that, fortunately, the effect is very small.
