Observing the crucial first few femtoseconds of photochemical reactions requires tools typically not available in the femtochemistry toolkit. Such dynamics are now within reach with the instruments provided by attosecond science. In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) characterise one of the fastest internal conversion processes in a molecule studied to date.

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is one of the most promising materials for photovoltaics and photocatalysis nowadays. This material appears in different crystalline forms, but the most attractive one for applications is “anatase”. EPFL scientists have now shed light onto the problem by a combination of steady-state and ultrafast spectroscopic techniques, as well as theoretical calculations.

Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a new way to study nanoparticles one at a time using plasmonic nanospectroscopy, and have discovered that individual particles that may seem identical in fact can have very different properties. The results, which may prove to be important when developing new materials or applications such as hydrogen sensors for fuel cell cars, will be published in Nature Materials.
