This chapter describes the experimental setups used to conduct the time-resolved photoionization experiments in the project. Some experiments were carried out in the Molecular Photonics Group at the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences, National Research Council Canada, in Ottawa and others in the Femtolab, Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. The next two sections will describe the setups used in the two laboratories. All of the used techniques are available in several other international laboratories, why the setups in view of brevity of the thesis will be fairly briefly described. Where appropriate the reader is referred to previously published work for details.
