Researchers image the structure and the response of atoms and molecules with powerful mid infrared electric fields

Time-resolved imaging of atoms and molecules is critical for understanding chemical reactions. To acquire such images, researchers typically bombard atoms or molecules with short laser pulses and then measure the emitted electron distribution. These pulses are often provided by near-infrared Ti:Sapphire lasers because they are more readily available, but the data

Imaging bond lengths with MIR-LIED

Nature Communications¬†has recently published the work “Imaging an aligned polyatomic molecule with laser-induced electron diffraction” in which ICFO researchers Dr. Michael Pullen, Benjamin Wolter, Matthias Baudisch and Dr. Michael Hemmer, led by ICREA Prof. at ICFO Dr. Jens Biegert, have developed the recipe to take ‘snapshots’ of polyatomic molecular structure
