Abstract: The third-order polarization for coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) from a pure state is described by 48 terms in perturbation theory, but only 4 terms satisfy the rotating wave approximation. They are represented by Feynman dual time-line diagrams and four-wave mixing energy level diagrams. In time-resolved (tr) fs and fs/ps CARS from the ground vibrational state, one resonant diagram, which is the typical CARS term, with three field interactions—pump, Stokes, followed by probe—on the ket is dominant. Using the separable, displaced harmonic oscillators approximation, an analytic result is obtained for the four-time correlation function in the CARS third-order polarization. Dlott's phenomenological expression for off-resonance CARS from the ground vibrational state is derived using a three-state model. We calculated the tr fs and fs/ps CARS for toluene and Rhodamine 6G (R6G), initially in the ground vibrational state, to compare with experimental results. The observed vibrational features and major peaks for both tr fs and fs/ps CARS, from off-resonance (for toluene) to resonance (for R6G) pump wavelengths, can be well reproduced by the calculations. The connections between fs/ps CARS, fs stimulated Raman spectroscopy, and impulsive stimulated scattering for toluene and R6G are discussed.
