The University of Wisconsin-Madison has developed the Doubly Vibrationally Enhanced Four Wave Mixing (DOVE) technique to study molecular interactions using modified infrared spectroscopy involving two infrared lasers.
This technique is called Doubly Vibrationally Enhanced (DOVE) Four Wave Mixing.
This increase, while still small enough to accept OC-48 or OC-192 channels, is sufficient to increase the threshold of Four Wave Mixing, the cause of nonlinear crosstalk.
