We are a rather young and hopefully fast emerging group at TU Graz that focuses on the investigation of processes that are induced after light-matter interaction. For more information about our research topics feel free to visit the Research section. For latest tidings and publications, see News, and if you are interested in joining and expanding our team, check out our Open positions.

2020-03-20: New article online in Phys. Rev. Letters
We proudly present our next achievement in the route to ultrafast chemistry inside helium nanodroplets. Our results on vibrational dynamics on In2 molecules made it into the prestigeous journal Phyical Review Letters. In this publication we describe the low influence of the superfluid droplets on intrinsic, molecular dynamics.

2020-01-09: New arcitle online in J. Phys. Chem. Letters
We are delighted that our collaboration with the group of Leticia Gonzáles (Vienna) resulted in the publication of this letter article. In the paper we closely monitor the ultrafast population transfer in nearly degenerate photoexcited states of acetone via a combination of time resolved photoelectron spectroscopy and surface hopping simulations.

2020-01-03: New article online in J. Chem. Phys.
A new article in which we describe ultrafast dynamics of atoms inside helium nanodroplets is now online. In this publication we extend our previous results and focus on the excess energy redistribution following indium photoexcitation.
