Jonas' and Ole's paper on pentafluoropyridine selected by JCP as 2017 Editor's Choice Article

Kiel, 28 February 2018:

Congratulations to Jonas and Ole for having their recent paper on pentafluoropyridine selected by the editors of JCP as 2017 Editor's Choice Article!

The article, co-authored by Jonas A. Kus, Ole Hüter and Friedrich Temps, with the title "Real-time observation of multi-mode vibronic coherence in pentafluoropyridine" was published in J. Chem. Phys. 47, 013938 (2017), DOI: 10.1063/1.4983306. As it is reported, Jonas and Ole discovered that out-of-plane vibrational motion of pentafluoropyridine creates strong multi-mode vibronic coupling between the first ππ* and πσ* excited electronic states. A resulting long-lived, pronounced electronic coherence of both states was experimentally observed using femtosecond mass spectrometry and photoelectron imaging spectroscopy. Oscillations with frequencies of 72 cm-1, 144 cm-1, 251 cm-1, and 281 cm-1 could be followed in time for more than 10 picoseconds.
