Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Photoexcitation of atoms solvated inside superfluid helium nanodroplets is investigated with femtosecond photoelectron spectroscopy. Expansion of the solvation shell within about 600 fs is observed as transient photoelectron peak shift. For larger photoexcitation energies within the blue-shifted absorption band, more energy is transferred to the He droplet and the expansion proceeds faster.
