By integration of ultrashort laser pulses with a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) one can study the electronic and carrier dynamics with very high spatial and temporal resolution. Nevertheless, molecular vibrational modes at the single-molecule level are difficult to track, owing to the lack of energy resolution. To overcome this barrier, we have now integrated a local spectroscopic tool, combining ultrafast laser pulses with an STM-based tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). By performing TERS with femtosecond laser pulses, we have tracked vibrational coherences and phonon dephasing dynamics in a single graphene nanoribbon (7-GNR). The decoherence time (T2/2 ~ 440 fs) of the phonons in a GNR has been obtained from the time-resolved coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectra. Temporal evolution of vibrational coherences (beatings) between different phonon modes in the GNR has been measured, which evolve on time scales as short as ~ 100 fs. This work lays the foundation for investigating intramolecular vibrational coherences and vibronic dynamics with utmost spatial, temporal and energy resolutions, simultaneously.
