While different expressions of homogeneous linear electronic dipole moment time correlation functions and their respective absorption lineshapes of anharmonic systems were derived and discussed at length in part I [Toutounji, M. J. Phys. Chem. B 2010, in press] of this study, the electronic dephasing (zero-phonon line width), caused by pseudolocal phonons, and vibrational relaxation time scales were treated equally, hence, unphysical. In this study electronic dephasing and vibrational structure are correctly accounted for in harmonic and anharmonic multimode systems. Model calculations are presented. Anharmonic hole-burned spectra are calculated using linear anharmonic absorption lineshapes. An analytical expression of hole-burned absorption line shape in terms of the linear dipole moment time correlation function, leading to a hole-burned absorption line shape expressed in time-domain, is reported. An elementary method is utilized to treat nonlinear spectra in anharmonic molecules. The link between a hole-burned spectrum and a 2-pulse photon echo profile is established by combining the theoretical framework of Mukamel and that of Hays-Small, thereby calculating photon echo signals of anharmonic systems. Model photon echo calculations of a solvable harmonic model and an anharmonic system are reported. Applications to Al-phthaolcyanine tetrasulphonate (APT) in hyperquenched glassy ethanol and special pair bacterial reaction center are presented and discussed in detail.
