Ultra-fast spectroscopy
« on: September 11, 2018, 10:11:40 AM »

Hi everyone,

I am considering applying for a PhD based upon the study of biological reactions using ultra-fast spectroscopy. Does anyone know of any good introductory textbooks to laser spectroscopy or femtochemistry? Preferably ones that do not require too much prior knowledge.

Thanks!

That is an awfully specific and advanced technique and area to be trying to learn about without "requiring to much prior knowledge".

Assuming you've mastered undergrad level text like Atkins, you'll want a good textbook on Spectroscopy and one on molecular photophysics. I recommend Bernath, Spectra of Atoms and Molecules, and Turro, Molecular Photochemistry. If you're interested in fluorescence, Lackowicz is classic.

Spectroscopic principles are no different in fs time domain.  That's just a matter of optics for generating short pulses.
