The study of core and valence excitations in molecules by stimulated Raman multidimensional broad band X ray spectroscopy

by Prof. Shaul Mukamel (University of California at Irvine)

Monday, December 16, 2013 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at European XFEL ( AER 19, room 3.11 )
Description Sequences of  resonant and off resonant X ray pulses can impulsively trigger and probe electronic and nuclear motions in molecules and analyse them using multidimensional correlation plots.
Principles for the design of these signals and applications to the Nitrogen Oxygen and Sulfur K edges in Cysteine, Carbon core transitions in Furan and energy transfer in porphyrin arrays will be presented. Multidimensinal  x ray single photon coincidence techniques will be described as well.
