Imaging Charge Transfer and Nuclear Dynamics in Time-Resolved X-Ray and Laser Experiments

The combination of various electron and ion imaging schemes, such as Velocity Map Imaging and Coincident Electron and Ion Momentum Imaging, with femtosecond light sources ranging from the near-infrared to the hard X-ray regime has allowed us to systematically study ultrafast dynamics in polyatomic gas-phase molecules. I will report on a series of time-resolved experiments on halogenated hydrocarbons performed with femtosecond near-infrared lasers as well as with soft and hard X-ray free-electron lasers, where we can directly observe nuclear dynamics in bound and dissociating molecular systems and image charge transfer between the molecular constituents.
