Abstract:
The photodynamics of single crystals of 4-(diisopropylamino)benzonitrile (DIABN) have been studied by femtosecond UV/Vis and mid-IR absorption spectroscopy. The observed spectroscopic response, especially in the UV/Vis, strongly depends on the optical excitation conditions. For the excitation light in resonance with the absorption of DIABN broad and structureless transient spectra are observed, which decay non-exponentially within pico- to nanoseconds. For off-resonance excitation in the very red wing of the absorption band a stimulated emission signal is detected, which decays in ~ 10 ps matching the known behavior of the non-interacting chromophore in solution. The 10 ps decay is due to an intramolecular charge transfer process, which is supported by femtosecond IR spectroscopy. The observed dependence on the excitation wavelength is assigned to a change in the density of excited chromophores and therefore bears relevance for time resolved X-ray diffraction experiments.
