XX. PROJECTION ANALYSIS OF COMPLEX SPECTRA When infrared spectra are diffuse and have overlapping bands, the 2D-IR method can be invaluable in characterizing the underlying structure and homogeneous dynamics. Equation (22) shows how the temporal decay of a photon-echo yields a homogeneous decay parameter in the presence of a broad frequency distribution. Therefore it is not surprising that the 2D-IR spectrum exposes the dynamical models for two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy 33 Figure 6. The 2D-IR spectrum of acylproline for three polarization conditions.

The Fourier transform of the cross term in (40) consists of two one-sided exponential decays, one extending from t ¼ d to infinity and the other from t ¼ Àd to Àinfinity: Sðt; tÞ ¼ 2 signðRÞ½eÀðgþioa Þt eÀiob ðtÀdÞ Âðt À dÞeÀgðtÀdÞ þ eðÀgþioa Þt eÀiob ðdþtÞ ÂðÀd À tÞeÀgðdþtÞ Š ð42Þ There is also a part at zero time from the terms represented by I and from the noise. Everything is discarded except the component at t ¼ d, which when back Fourier-transformed yields S0 ðt; ot Þ ¼ 2 sign ðRÞeÀðga þioa Þt eÀiot d =ðgb þ iðob À ot ÞÞ ð43Þ which is the complex spectrum of the generated fields at each value of t.

Characterizing these signals is an important experimental challenge in each of the examples we have studied. Fortunately, the thermal grating signal from D2O is relatively small compared with the resonant signals from peptides so it does not present a barrier to applications of 2D-IR in aqueous biological systems. However, the thermal grating contributions grow in with increasing T and do persist for very long periods compared with the lifetimes of vibrationally excited states, and so they may ultimately dominate the signals when T becomes large enough.
