Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Resonant pump off-resonant probe OKE spectroscopy was performed to study the coupling of solvent molecular modes to photoexcitation of the solute. The intermolecular solvent modes of a range of polar and polarizable solvents including CHCl3 and CH3CN are coupled in distinct to the electronic excitation of Coumarin 153.
