Abstract : Given the enormous increase in resolution that can be realized in hole burning studies, the application of these techniques to determine the spectroscopic consequences of applied electric fields was a natural extension. Much of the work in this area has focused on organic dye molecules in disordered glasses. For most of these systems, the application of an electric field most often just broadens the persistent hole although it has been shown that, in certain cases the orientation averaged effect of a randomly oriented solvent field plus a fixed applied field can lead to a partial splitting of the hole profile.
