Ultrafast spectroscopy

Ejecting electrons from water

Nature Chemistry volume 2, pages 247248 (2010) | Download Citation

The interactions of electrons and water molecules are not just of great fundamental interest but are also studied to understand the role electrons have in damaging biomolecules. Now using ultrafast photoelectron spectroscopy, key details about the energy and lifetime of the hydrated electron in bulk and at an interface have been determined.
