Time-resolved infrared (IR) pump-probe experiments were conducted at FELIX, the free electron laser (FEL) at Nieuwegein, The Netherlands. The study aims to measure the relaxation time, both longitudinal and transverse, of protein molecules at the amide I band and in the far-IR band. To address the problem of high differential sensitivity, the dual element detector approach and the single element approach were applied.
