Measuring fluorescence-detected two-quantum photon echoes using cogwheel phase cycling — •Ajay Jayachandran, Stefan Müller, and Tobias Brixner — Institut für Physikalische und Theoretische Chemie, Universität Würzburg, Am Hubland, 97074 Würzburg, Germany

We describe two-quantum photon echo spectroscopy, a new technique that enables one the selective characterization of doubly excited states. This technique is analogous to the popular ‘photon echo’ experiment [1], which encodes the dynamic information associated with singly excited states.

We transfer the core principle, i.e., a rephasing contribution that removes the effect of inhomogeneous broadening, to doubly excited states, and we extract the signal experimentally using cogwheel phase cycling of three-pulse sequences and fluorescence detection. We verify the applicability of cogwheel phase cycling, which has proven useful in two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to reduce overall measurement time in comparison to nested phase cycling [2], by extracting the two-quantum photon echo without any signal aliasing.

We study how exciton–exciton annihilation of squaraine molecular aggregates of varying chain length [3] can be quantified by accessing the homogenous linewidth of the biexciton state which is obtained from the two-quantum photon echo.
