Time-resolved photoelectron circular dichroism in solution — •Janina Lebendig-Kuhla, Hans-Hermann Ritze, and Andrea Lübcke — Max-Born-Institut für Nichtlineare Optik und Kurzzeitspektroskopie, Berlin
The phenomenon of chirality is a widely spread characteristic of molecules, especially in biological systems. This property is accompanied by circular dichroism, the effect of a chiral molecule interacting differently with circularly polarized light of different handedness. We combine time-resolved photoelectron circular dichroism (TR-PECD) measurements with the liquid jet technique to investigate the excited state dynamics of chiral molecules in solution. This method implies the generation of ultrashort circularly polarized UV-pulses as well as a detection scheme compatible with the liquid jet environment. We will present our experimental approach and show first results.
