Optical Picosecond Spectroscopy Academic Article uri icon


  • Mode-locked laser techniques for obtaining spectroscopic information about ultrafast molecular processes occurring on a picosecond time scale are described. The results of picosecond measurements on several systems are presented as examples of the method. The advantages of employing two-dimensional vidicons and recently developed dispersive techniques to obtain time-resolved transient spectra with a single laser pulse rather than with multiple pulse techniques are discussed.
