Interface-specific ultrafast two-dimensional vibrational spectroscopy
"Surfaces and interfaces are omnipresent in nature. They are not just the place where two bulk media meet. Surfaces and interfaces play key roles in a diversity of fields ranging from heterogeneous catalysis and membrane biology to nanotechnology. They are the site of important dynamical processes, such as transport phenomena, energy transfer, molecular interactions, as well as chemical reactions. Tools to study molecular structure and dynamics that can be applied to the delicate molecular layers at surfaces and interfaces are thus highly desirable.
