Ultrafast Glimpses at Water and Ice

Published

Author(s)

Edwin J. Heilweil

Abstract

Recent literature reports of transient infrared hole-burning and spectroscopic measurements on water and ice are critically reviewed. Dynamical measurements on the femtosecond and picosecond timescales show anomalous vibrational relaxation temperature dependencies and crystalline-like structures that are identified within the inhomogeneous hydroxyl-stretching band of both water phases.
