Insight into the dynamics of photoinduced chemistry under restricted solvation conditions
(Hussain Mazhar)

The photo induced solvation dynamics of organic molecule is investigated under restricted solvation conditions using low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy. An electron is induced into a photoreactive molecule from the metallic surface where it was excited through a femtosecond laser pulse, focused into the tunneling region. This photoreaction will take place in an amorphous ice environment and then in other solvent mixtures to study the influence of the solvent.
