A picosecond time-resolved vibrational circular dichroism spectrometer

Abstract

We present an experimental setup to detect transient vibrational circular dichroism signals. A femtosecond laser system is synchronized to a photoelastic modulator to produce alternating left- and right-handed circularly polarized mid-IR pulses at 1 kHz repetition rate. Transient changes in the circular dichroism of the CH-stretch vibrations of a cobalt-sparteine complex were probed in a proof-of-principle experiment and are clearly distinct from conventional transient absorption changes.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
