Abstract
An improved time resolved interferometric technique characterizes the optical nonlinear response of various liquids and solids. Absolute values of optical third order susceptibilities have been measured and molecular dynamics extracted from coherent signals. Subfemtosecond processes have been evidenced using this new analysis.
