Picosecond dynamics of electron localization in metal/methyl amine solutions Academic Article uri icon


  • Photoionization of the M- band of sodium/methyl amine by a picosecond pulse reveals the following: (1) The time of electron localization is less than 5 psec. (2) The bleaching of the solvated electron absorption band in the 1000 nm region with a relatively narrow bandwidth ∼100 cm-1 picosecond pulse at (1060 nm) is found to be proportional to the extinction coeficients. (3) The relaxation time of the excited state of the solvated electron was determined to be ∼2 × 10-13 sec. Copyright © 1976 American Institute of Physics.
