Heterodyne pump-probe experiment

An infrared femtosecond laser passes through a pair of acoustooptic frequency shifters, to form the probe and reference beam in a heterodyne pump probe experiment. This photograph was taken in the dark, using 30 second exposure time while moving a fluorescent card through the beam path to highlight the (otherwise invisible) optical beam in yellow.
