Probing Femtosecond Molecular Dynamics

Department: Science & Technology
News Channels: Materials SCENE

With a new, fast, and high-energy laser spectroscopy method, researchers can now probe the dynamics of highly excited molecular species on the femtosecond timescale with angstrom-level spatial resolution (Science 2007, 317, 1374). Developed by Etienne Gagnon, Arvinder S. Sandhu, and coworkers at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and elsewhere, the procedure provides a way to probe atmospheric chemical processes stimulated by high-energy photons as well as interactions between ionizing radiation and various forms . . .
