About the Talk : When we can see what we could not see before, new science emerges. Spectroscopy is the “eyes” of modern science, and hence it plays essential roles in its frontier.  In particular, the recent advance of ultrafast laser technology has enabled us to utilize ultrashort optical pulses as short as 10 femtoseconds in a variety of experiments.  The short duration of such ultrashort optical pulses allows us to track chemical changes occurring in the femto/picosecond time scale, and the high peak power enables us to selectively observe molecules at the interface region as thin as 1 nm using nonlinear spectroscopy. In this lecture, I will talk about the wonder world of molecules seen with the most advanced spectroscopy.
