Multidimensional electronic spectroscopy with mass-resolved ion detection — •Hans-Peter Solowan, Tristan Ford, Sebastian Roeding, and Tobias Brixner — Institut für Physikalische und Theoretische Chemie, Universität Würzburg, Am Hubland, 97074 Würzburg, Germany
We report a new technique, molecular-beam coherent two-dimensional (2D) electronic spectroscopy, enabling multidimensional electronic spectroscopy of gas-phase samples with mass-resolved ion detection. Using time-of-flight mass spectrometry, we have introduced cations as a new observable in coherent 2D spectroscopy.
Using a pulse shaper based on an acousto-optic programmable dispersive filter and rapid scanning  we focus a train of four collinear pulses in the visible regime into an interaction region with a molecular beam. Via phase cycling  the signals of the time-of-flight mass spectrometer can be disentangled to extract the different contributions, like the photon-echo response. With this new experimental method, the ionization pathway of nitrogen dioxide is investigated and the first ion-selective 2D spectrum of a molecular-beam sample is aquired. By implementation of a supersonic molecular beam with argon as a seed gas, the range of potential samples will be extended.
