Nature Communications have published an article about a study which monitors the motion of nuclei in molecules in real time using hard x-ray absorption spectroscopy (allows observation of the local atomic environment of a given element as well as its electronic structure). The research presents “an impulsive stimulated Raman scattering (ISRS) pump/carbon K-edge absorption probe investigation, which allowed observation of the low-frequency vibrational modes involving specific selected carbon atoms in the Ibuprofen RS dimer”.
During the experiment, samples were deposited on Silson’s silicon nitride membranes of membrane size 25 x 25 mm^2 and thickness 100nm and pump-probe experiments were conducted at the FERMI FEL facility in Trieste, Italy.
