Abstract

High-time-resolution broadband pump-probe spectroscopy of rhodopsin reveals the loss of reactant and appearance of photoproduct features within ≈100fs, which are signatures of a wavepacket moving through a conical intersection. Experiments are supported by molecular dynamics simulations. © Optical Society of America.
