Time-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering is applied to prepare and interrogate
vibrational coherences on the ground electronic surface of molecular iodine isolated in Ar matrices.
The coherence decay time shows a linear dependence on vibrational quantum numbers for
v 3­15. The temperature dependence of decoherence rates is negligible for v 7 in
the experimental range T 18­32 K. For a v 13, 14 superposition, the temperature dependence
indicates dephasing by a 66 cm 1
pseudo-local phonon, just outside the Debye edge of the
solid. The accuracy of the data is limited due to two-photon induced dissociation of the molecule,
a process which is characterized using polarized fields. The T0 limit of dephasing is
discussed. © 2003 American Institute of Physics. DOI: 10.1063/1.1614200
