We construct pulse polarization configurations in heterodyne four wave mixing for monitoring ultrafast(picosecond)exchange rates between optical isomers with axial chirality.This information is not available from linear circular dichroism,since enantiomers may not be isolated and racemate shows no chiral signal.
