Abstract : In this project we have performed both experimental and theoretical studies of nonlinear optical beam interactions in a variety of media. During this reporting period we have (1) extended our set of exact focused-pulse solutions of Maxwell's equations in vacuum, (2) discovered a new two-photon resonance in the fullerene C60, (3) measured excited- state cross-sections in protonic-doped bis-benzothiazole (4) developed a nonlinear interferometer which measures phase, as well as magnitude, of certain nonlinear optical susceptibilities, and (5) completed our experimental and theoretical demonstration of the first clear example of a strongly-coupled large polaron.
