Abstract

In this paper, it is shown that important structural information of liquids can be deduced by use of third-harmonic generation (THG) and infrared-visible sum-frequency generation (IVSFG). A simple molecular model based on the hydrogen bonding strength will be proposed to explain the features observed in the measured THG susceptibility. A different behavior from that of CH3OH/H2O was observed from the study of CH3CN/H2O with THG technique.
