Illustration of the considered process. At t = 0, a spectator Resonant Interparticle Coulombic Decay (sRICD) is initiated by XUV excitation. At a later time ts a second strong infrared laser pulse quenches the RICD process by ionization and thereby initiates ICD. The signals of the respective electrons with kinetic energies Ekin are well separated. While the RICD appears from the start of the XUV pulse centered at t = 0, the ICD signal appears after the second pulse. This approach allows for a time-resolved measurement of the RICD signal and an interference free measurement of the ICD signal.

 

I am a theoretical chemist. My main interests are ultrafast processes and how they can be studied in a time-resolved manner. I have experience in creating fundamental models as well as quantum chemical method development, in particular within relativistic quantum chemistry.
