We review the progress in controlling quantum dynamical processes in the condensed phase with femtosecond laser pulses. Due to its high particle density the condensed phase has both high relevance and appeal for chemical synthesis. Thus, in recent years different methods have been developed to manipulate the dynamics of condensed-phase systems by changing(More)
We report the experimental determination of the intramolecular enol-enol tautomerization rate of an unsymmetric β-diketone, benzoylacetone, with femtosecond transient absorption in the ultraviolet. Initially, there is an equilibrium of two possible enolic structures in solution, which is disturbed upon UV excitation by exciting a disproportionate fraction(More)
We study the excitation and propagation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) on a micron-sized thin gold stripe. Grating couplers are embedded for both excitation of SPPs and detection after propagation. The experimental setup allows measuring of the decay length of the SPPs on the gold stripe excited in the near infrared part of the electromagnetic(More)
