Welcome to the Ultrafast Optoelectronics Group website. We develop state-of-the-art spectroscopy methods and apply them to understand the behaviour of molecular and nanoscale systems. FEIS 2013, the first in this series, was organized with the goal of initiating conversation between different communities with the objective of reviewing the current state-of-the-art development and open issues of ultrafast electron imaging technologies, and to assess emerging scientific opportunities enabled by ultrafast imaging and spectroscopy. It will comprise contemporary scientific studies exploiting the rich variety and information content available by means of these time-resolved spectroscopy tools. This review summarizes the state-of-the-art knowledge in designing concepts, integrated configurations and overall performances of different types of solar-driven hybrid energy units. Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Photoactive Materials and Biomolecules Researchers in the Kohler group investigate the photophysical and photochemical dynamics of excited electronic states in photoactive materials and biomolecules using state-of-the-art femtosecond laser spectroscopic techniques. The Horizon 2020–funded Innovative Training Network on the Study of carrier transport in MAterials by time-Resolved specTroscopy with ultrashort soft X-ray light—which goes by the much more manageable nickname SMART-X—aims to create a … Using these advanced spectroscopy, we aim to observe, understand, and control new fundamental phenomena of reactive molecules. The Lian group develops and applies state-of-the-art ultrafast and nonlinear spectroscopy techniques for the study of these interfacial dynamics in situ under photocatalytic, photoelectrochemical and electrocatalytic conditions (see the Technique page for details). To this end, we develop new ultrafast spectroscopic methods based on basic knowledge on the light-matter interaction and state-of-the-art laser technology. This Special Issue aims to showcase the current state-of-the-art research activities using advanced ultrafast X-ray spectroscopies employing both soft and hard pulsed X-radiation.

Ultrafast two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR) spectroscopy has provided valuable insights into biomolecular structure and dynamics, but recent progress in laser technology and data analysis methods have demonstrated the potential for high throughput 2D … It is shown that crucial challenges in the computational spectroscopy of astroCOMs can be successfully overcome by combining state‐of‐the‐art quantum‐mechanical approaches with ad hoc treatments of the nuclear motion, thus demonstrating that the rotational and vibrational features can be predicted with the proper accuracy. Particular attentions are paid to highlighting the practical application … Peiwen Wang. This year saw the launch of an ambitious new pan-European program to push the envelope on tabletop ultrafast X-ray spectroscopy.
