Resolving vibrational wave-packet dynamics of D+2 using multicolor probe pulses (2012)
We demonstrate the generation and real-time observation of the vibrational wave packet of D+2 by using a sub-10-fs extreme UV high-harmonic pump pulse and a three-color probe laser pulse whose wavelength ranges from near-IR to vacuum UV. This multicolor pump–probe scheme can provide us with a powerful experimental tool for investigating a variety of wave packets evolving with a time scale of \sim20 fs.
