Study of molecular motion in liquids by picosecond spectroscopy

  • 27 Accesses

Abstract

After excitation by picosecond light pulses the time-dependent fluorescence and probe beam spectra provide information on internal molecular relaxation and transfer processes between neighboring molecules as well as on translation and reorientation of the excited molecule as a whole and its internal motion. In this paper some aspects concerning the measurement of reorientation and internal motion will be discussed.
