We present a new coherent Raman scattering technique, which we call balanced-detection Raman-induced Kerr effect. The technique relies on a balanced detection architecture which allows one to sensitively measure the Raman-induced Kerr effect-induced polarization rotation of the Stokes field. Balanced detection provides an intrinsic rejection of laser noise and, by properly changing the detection conditions, it allows the reconstruction of the full complex vibrational response, both in amplitude and phase, greatly increasing chemical selectivity in single-color excitation.
