Our ammonia study with ultrafast electron diffraction is out in PRL

We investigated the photodissociation of ammonia with ultrafast electron diffraction

Our results show signatures of both hydrogen dissociation dynamics and corresponding changes in the electronic structure of the molecule and its fragments. The signatures are confirmed by ab initio studies of the dissociation dynamics and the resulting electron diffraction observables.

My research is focused on discovering structure-function relationships in ultrafast photochemistry to better understand and eventually control this type of reactions.
