Towards Direct Measurement of Ultrafast Vibrational Energy Flow in Proteins

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY,volume 162)

Abstract

Vibrational energy transfer (VET) within a molecule can be investigated in great detail with ultrafast IR spectroscopy. We report on progress towards mapping of VET pathways in proteins using unnatural amino acids as site-specific probes.
