In this article, we will examine ultrafast spectroscopy techniques and applications, covering ‘time-resolved IR’ (TR-IR) spectroscopy, time resolved visible (TA) spectroscopy, two-dimensional IR (2D-IR) spectroscopy, Kerr-gated Raman spectroscopy, time-resolved Raman and surface sum-frequency generation (SSFG) spectroscopy. In addition to introducing each technique, we will cover some basics, such as what kinds of lasers are used and discuss how these techniques are applied to study a diversity of chemical problems such as photo-catalysis, photo-chemistry, electro-catalysis, battery electrode characterisation, zeolite characterisation and protein structural dynamics.
