A novel form of laser frequency switching is devised that extends coherent optical transient studies to a 100-picosecond time scale, the measurements being performed in real time. Free-induction decay (FID) on a subnanosecond time scale reveals new features, such as a first-order FID that dephases with the inhomogeneous dephasing time T
