Abstract

We introduce a method of polarization spectroscopy into photon-gated persistent spectral hole burning, which results in considerable improvement in the signal-to-background ratio. Fifty multiple spectral holes burnt into meso-phenyl-tetrabenzoporphyrinato-zinc/aromatic cyanide/poly(methyl methacrylate) were clearly detected by this measurement technique. We developed a simplified model to account for the hole shapes. Background birefringence combined with refractive dispersion is thought to play a key role in the generation of asymmetric line shapes.
