Direct Observation of Nonchaotic Multilevel Vibrational Energy Flow in Isolated Polyatomic Molecules


With picosecond spectroscopy and molecular beams it is shown that nonchaotic multilevel vibrational energy flow is present in large polyatomic molecules. This Letter reports on this novel observation and its probing of the fundamental process of energy redistribution in molecules.
