Perspective: On the relevance of slower-than-femtosecond time scales in chemical structural-dynamics studies2(2015); http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4913362View Description Hide Description
A number of examples illustrate structural-dynamics studies of picosecond and slower photo-induced processes. They include molecular rearrangements and excitations. The information that can be obtained from such studies is discussed. The results are complementary to the information obtained from femtosecond studies. The point is made that all pertinent time scales should be covered to obtain comprehensive insight in dynamic processes of chemical and biological importance.
