Ultrafast Spectroscopy Group (USG)
The understanding of combustion and atmospheric processes on the fundamental
basis of elementary chemical reactions is essential in sustainable energy research.
We concentrate on ultrafast dynamics of molecules relevant to atmospheric and combustion processes,
such as flame ignition and the initial steps of soot generation. In this context we focus our research on
fundamental aspects that include collision induced intra- and inter-molecular
energy transfer, internal conversion, inter-state coupling and unimolecular dissociation mechanisms.
