Research
We use intense femtosecond laser pulses to excite and probe ultrafast molecular dynamics. By combining ultrafast laser techniques with advanced fast beam imaging techniques we develop time resolved photo-fragment imaging that allows detection of molecular dissociation events on the relevant ultrafast time scales. Of specific interest are dissociation dynamics of superexcited states that exhibit extremely non-Born-Oppenheimer competition between autoionization and fragmentation decay pathways, multiple fragmentation mechanisms and evolution of molecular dynamics with increasing system complexity.
