AbstractUsing the tools of femtosecond X-ray diffraction [1], electron diffraction [2] and laser-induced recollision [3], scientists are developing new methods to image chemical reactions as they occur. However, all of these methods face a common problem - only a small fraction of the molecules can be excited with an ultrashort pulse. When this problem was confronted in femtochemistry, a careful selection of the probe wavelength provided a way to discriminate excited molecules from unexcited molecules. Spectral selection is not available for any of these new methods. © 2011 IEEE.
