UV-induced Dissociation Dynamics of Bromoform Probed by UED

Molecular Dynamics by Ultrafast Electron Diffraction

Imagine how much easier it would be to understand chemistry if one could take snapshots of molecules with atomic resolution while they undergo chemical transformations. This is exactly what we are aiming for in the latest addition to our scientific portfolio. Using the Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED) facility at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, we study light-induced unimolecular reaction dynamics by illuminating the molecules with intense, femtosecond duration electron pulses.

This is our latest effort and we are working on our first manuscript on montoring UV-induced dissociation dynamics in bromoform by UED. Stay tuned...
