What is Femtoscopy?

Wednesday, 25 April 2007
 Physical, chemical and biological processes often appear complex because we look at them on an extended timescale, during which many steps in the process are integrated. Despite the rich history of chemistry over two millennia, the real time observation of actual atomic motions involved in chemical reactions is very recent. Chemical bonds form, break, and evolve with awesome rapidity. Whether in isolation or in any other phase, this ultrafast transformation is a dynamic process involving the mechanical motion of electrons and atomic nuclei. The speed of atomic motion is of the order of 1 km/s and, hence, the average time required to record atomic-scale dynamics over a distance of 1 Å is in the range of 100 femtoseconds (fs). The very act of such atomic motions, the way reactions unfold and pass through their transition states, is the focus of the field of femtochemistry.
Femtoscopy is a research group of interdisciplinary nature toiling over challenging problems in which the traditional distinction between biology, chemistry and physics is smeared out by the common ultra short timescale. Our research project is based on the construction of a non conventional Raman setup. An innovative pump-probe stimulated scheme allows to overcome time-energy restrictions dictated by the uncertainty principle, enabling to reach the femtosecond timescale with energy resolutions which would pertain to the picosecond time domain in the Heisenberg sense.
