Characterization of the Complex Third-order Susceptibility of Myoglobin using Diffractive Optics
We measured ultrafast structural relaxations in horse carboxymyoglobin (MbCO) using heterodyne-detected transient grating spectroscopy. The anisotropic component of the protein response to photodissociation was isolated by acquiring all nonzero elements of the complex third-order nonlinear susceptibility (X (3)) tensor.
