We have studied the time evolution of population wave packets under intense chirped pulse excitation by resonance heterodyne optical Kerr effect spectroscopy. In general, this method enables us to obtain complementary information about population wave packets versus the absorption spectrum of an intense chirped pulse. We have generalized the "moving potentials" picture of one of the authors to a non-Debye solvent. We analyze the effects of both the parameters of the solvent-solute system and the electric field on the signal of the heterodyne optical Kerr effect experiment.
