Molecular Dynamics Group
Molecular Dynamics Group promotes competencies to assess
combustion relevant reaction mechanisms using spectroscopic
techniques. We apply non-linear laser spectroscopy in the
frequency domain and time
domain, time-of-flight mass spectrometry and tunable
synchrotron radiation to characterize short-lived
intermediate compounds and to investigate dissociation
processes of excited molecules. Expanding the scope of our
work, we intend to determine thermodynamical data of
intermediate species relevant in other fields such as
atmospheric chemistry and astrophysics.
group is in charge to maintain a 5 eV to 30 eV range VUV
beamline at SLS and a laser laboratory equipped with nano-
and femtosecond laser systems .
Molecular Dynamics Group is a section of the Combustion Research Laboratory
in the General Energy
Department of PSI and a part of the NCCR MUST
Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology Network.
