Recent research has shown that vibronic coherences are one of the primary drivers for ultrafast light-induced processes. Now, ultrafast spectroscopy has been used to uncover vibronic coherences in the excited-state dynamics of an iron complex, leading to its redesign and the drastic prolonging of its excited-state lifetime.
