Molecules in strong Laserfields

In combination with a femto-second Laser our ColTRIMS-technique can give interesting insights in the timedependent behaviour of molecules. Because of excitation or ionization the molecule can show different reactions like shrinking or Coulomb-explosion, which can be measured by our detectors.

So far we investigated the following subjects:

H2+ in strong fields

Double Ionization of N2 and O2

Direct Determination of Absolute
Molecular Stereochemistry in Gas Phase
by Coulomb Explosion Imaging

Attosecond movies without attosecond pulses:
Electron motion in dissociating H2+
