Abstract

We combine different wavelengths from an intense high-order harmonics source with variable delay at the focus of a split-mirror interferometer to conduct pump–probe experiments on gas-phase molecules. We report measurements of the time resolution ( < 44 fs ) and spatial profiles ( 4 μm × 12 μm ) at the focus of the apparatus. We demonstrate the utility of this two-color, high-order-harmonic technique by time resolving molecular hydrogen elimination from C 2 H 4 excited into its absorption band at 161 nm .
