Abstract

An understanding of chemical reactivity begins with an understanding of the dynamics involved regarding system-bath interactions. Spectroscopic studies of these interactions in condensed-phase multichromophoric systems are intricate and contain much information. Photon-echo spectroscopy has proven to be a useful tool for probing these interactions. A description of three-pulse photon-echo peak shift spectroscopy (3PEPS) theory, experiment, and application for the study of solvation and dynamics of nanoscale excitons is presented. Also, we discuss how two-dimensional photon-echo spectroscopy (2DPE) relates to 3PEPS and show how 3PEPS data can be extracted from 2D photon-echo data.
