Abstract

Halpin, Johnson, and Miller contest our assignment of quantum beating signals observed in the two-dimensional electronic spectra of a series of fluorescein heterodimers to electronic coherences. Here, we present resonance Raman spectra, statistical analysis on multiple data sets, and an explanation of differences between the family of molecules described in our Report and the homodimer examined by the commenters. We contend that these results all support our assignment of the beating signals to electronic coherences.
