The degenerate four-wave mixing (ωs1+ω-ω; ω1=2ω) process using incoherent Gaussian exciting beams has been realized for one- and two-component media with the predominant orientational nonlinearity. The picosecond molecular orientational relaxation times of organic liquids and dye solutions have been measured using nanosecond exciting beams.
