Coherent multidimensional spectroscopy in the gas phase

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Recent work applying multidimentional coherent electronic spectroscopy at dilute samples in the gas phase is reviewed. The development of refined phase cycling approaches with improved sensitivity has opened up new opportunities to probe even dilute gas-phase samples. In this context, first results of two-dimensional spectroscopy performed at doped helium droplets reveal the femtosecond dynamics upon the electronic excitation of cold, weakly-bound molecules, and even the induced dynamics from the interaction with the helium environment. Such experiments, offering well-defined conditions at low temperatures, are potentially enabling the isolation of fundamental processes in the excitation and charge transfer dynamics of molecular structures which so far have been masked in complex bulk environments.
