AMO Seminar

Title: Imaging molecular dynamics by coincidence measurements with XUV radiation

Speaker: Dr. Arne Senftleben, Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik Heidelberg 

Time: Wednesday, Jan. 16th, 10:15

Place: 1520-516



The interaction with extreme ultra-violet radiation induces manifold break-up dynamics in molecular systems. These can be investigated in detail by imaging the momenta of the individual products of a single reaction in coincidence with a reaction microscope. Three recently performed experiments will be presented: 

- Electron localization involving doubly-excited states in dissociative photo-ionization of hydrogen

- Dynamics of inner-shell ionized iodine molecules

- Ultrafast hydrogen migration in acetylene

The latter two experiments were time-sensitive pump-probe studies performed at the free-electron laser in Hamburg (FLASH).


Coffee, tee and breadrolls will be served at 10.
