Ultrafast Core-to-Valence Transient XUV Absorption Spectroscopy (TXA)

Molecular Dynamics by Transient Inner-Shell Absorption Spectroscopy

Chemistry is enabled by the correlated dance of electrons and atoms, leading to the rearrangement of molecular structures, including the separation of existing and the formation of new inter-atomic bonds. Monitoring and understanding these fundamental steps of chemistry on their natural, ultrafast timescales is the focus of the transient inner-shell absorption spectroscopy thrust. Using femtosecond time-resolved core-to-valence XUV and X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy (TXA), we follow chemical transformations from the unique vantage points of specific reporter atoms.
