Probing electron and hole colocalization by resonant four-wave mixing spectroscopy in the extreme ultraviolet
Extending nonlinear spectroscopic techniques into the x-ray domain promises unique insight into photoexcited charge dynamics, which are of fundamental and applied interest. We report on the
Probing electron and hole co-localization by resonant four-wave mixing in the extreme-ultraviolet
probe for the degree of charge localization: substantial sum- and difference-frequency generation is observed exclusively when in a one- or three-photon resonance with a LiF core exciton, with a


Attosecond Time-Domain Measurement of Core-Level-Exciton Decay in Magnesium Oxide.
Core-level-exciton states of magnesium oxide are studied in the time domain at the Mg L L_{2,3} edge with attosecond transient reflectivity spectroscopy and it is revealed that the infrared pulse shifts the energy of bright (dipole-allowed) core- level- Exciton states as well as induces features arising from dark core-level excitons.
Excited-state vibronic wave-packet dynamics in H 2 probed by XUV transient four-wave mixing

Multiple pulse coherent dynamics and wave packet control of the N2 a'' 1Σ dark state by attosecond four-wave mixing.
Experimental measurements of the a'' 1∑+g outer well vibrational spacing and anharmonicity closely match the values theoretically predicted for this previously unobserved state of nitrogen.
Nonlinear XUV-optical transient grating spectroscopy at the Si L2,3–edge
Time-resolved transient grating (TG) spectroscopy facilitates detailed studies of electron dynamics and transport phenomena by means of a periodic excitation of matter with coherent ultrashort light
Soft x-ray excitonics
This study uncovered the angular momentum character and relaxation dynamics of the excitons, or electron-hole pairs, ensuing from the x-ray absorption at the L2,3 edge of Si in silicon dioxide (SiO2).
The ultrafast X-ray spectroscopic revolution in chemical dynamics
The past two decades have seen rapid developments in short-pulse X-ray sources, which have enabled the study of nuclear and electronic dynamics by ultrafast X-ray spectroscopies with unprecedented
First Evidence of Purely Extreme-Ultraviolet Four-Wave Mixing.
This paper reports on the first observation of a four-wave-mixing (FWM) response from solid-state samples stimulated exclusively by EUV pulses, and extracts the first-ever estimate of an effective value of ∼6×10^{-24}  m-2 V^{-2} for the third-order nonlinear susceptibility in the EUV regime.
Multidimensional attosecond resonant X-ray spectroscopy of molecules: lessons from the optical regime.
It is discussed possible experiments that employ attosecond X-ray pulses to probe the quantum coherence and correlations of valence electrons and holes, rather than the charge density alone, building on the analogy with existing studies of vibrational motions using femtosecond techniques in the visible regime.
Four wave mixing experiments with extreme ultraviolet transient gratings
Four-wave mixing (FWM) processes, based on third-order nonlinear light–matter interactions, can combine ultrafast time resolution with energy and wavevector selectivity, and enable the exploration of
Autoionization dynamics of (2P1/2)ns/d states in krypton probed by noncollinear wave mixing with attosecond extreme ultraviolet and few-cycle near infrared pulses.
The results demonstrate the promise of wave-mixing spectroscopies with subfemtosecond XUV pulses to provide valuable insights into processes governed by electronic dynamics.
