The dynamics of the excited-state intramolecular proton transfer of 10-hydroxybenzo[h]quinoline (10-HBQ) and the associated coherent nuclear motion were investigated in solution by femtosecond absorption spectroscopy. Sub-picosecond transient absorption measurements revealed spectral features of the stimulated emission and absorption of the keto excited state (the product of the reaction). The stimulated emission band appeared in the 600-800-nm region, corresponding to the wavelength region of… Expand

Tracking of the nuclear wavepacket motion in cyanine photoisomerization by ultrafast pump-dump-probe spectroscopy.
A nuclear wavepacket motion in photoisomerization of a prototype cyanine dye is studied by ultrafast pump-dump-probe measurements in solution and a rapid migration as well as broadening of the wavepackets manifests a continuous nature of the structural dynamics and provides an intuitive visualization of this ultrafast reaction.
