abstract = {The early steps (<1ns) in the photocycle of the detergent solubilized proton pump proteorhodopsin are analyzed by ultrafast spectroscopic techniques. A comparison to the first primary events in reconstituted proteorhodopsin as well as to the well known archaeal proton pump bacteriorhodopsin is given. A dynamic Stokes shift observed in fs-time-resolved fluorescence experiments allows a direct observation of early motions on the excited state potential energy surface. The initial dynamics is dominated by sequentially emerging stretching (<150fs) and torsional (∼300fs) modes of the retinal. The different protonation states of the primary proton acceptor Asp-97 drastically affect the reaction rate and the overall quantum efficiencies of the isomerization reactions, mainly evidenced for time scales above 1ps. However, no major influence on the fast time scales (∼150fs) could be seen, indicating that the movement out of the Franck-Condon region is fairly robust to electrostatic changes in the retinal binding pocket. Based on fs-time-resolved absorption and fluorescence spectra, ground and exited state contributions can be disentangled and allow to construct a reaction model that consistently explains pH-dependent effects in solubilized and reconstituted proteorhodopsin.}

abstract = {We demonstrate a new technique for frequency-swept laser operation--Fourier domain mode locking (FDML)--and its application for swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging. FDML is analogous to active laser mode locking for short pulse generation, except that the spectrum rather than the amplitude of the light field is modulated. High-speed, narrowband optical frequency sweeps are generated with a repetition period equal to the fundamental or a harmonic of cavity round-trip time. An FDML laser is constructed using a long fiber ring cavity, a semiconductor optical amplifier, and a tunable fiber Fabry-Perot filter. Effective sweep rates of up to 290 kHz are demonstrated with a 105 nm tuning range at 1300 nm center wavelength. The average output power is 3 mW directly from the laser and 20 mW after post-amplification. Using the FDML laser for swept-source OCT, sensitivities of 108 dB are achieved and dynamic linewidths are narrow enough to enable imaging over a 7 mm depth with only a 7.5 dB decrease in sensitivity. We demonstrate swept-source OCT imaging with acquisition rates of up to 232,000 axial scans per second. This corresponds to 906 frames/second with 256 transverse pixel images, and 3.5 volumes/second with a 256{\texttimes}128{\texttimes}256 voxel element 3-D OCT data set. The FDML laser is ideal for swept-source OCT imaging, thus enabling high imaging speeds and large imaging depths.},

abstract = {We demonstrate high resolution, three-dimensional OCT imaging with a high speed, frequency swept 1300 nm laser source. A new external cavity semiconductor laser design, optimized for application to swept source OCT, is discussed. The design of the laser enables adjustment of an internal spectral filter to change the filter bandwidth and provides a robust bulk optics design. The laser generates ~30 mW instantaneous peak power at an effective 16 kHz sweep rate with a tuning range of ~133 nm full width. In frequency domain reflectometry and OCT applications, 109 dB sensitivity and ~10 $\mu$m axial resolution in tissue can be achieved with the swept laser. The high imaging speeds enable three-dimensional OCT imaging, including zone focusing or C-mode imaging and image fusion to acquire large depth of field data sets with high resolution. In addition, three-dimensional OCT data provides coherence gated en face images similar to optical coherence microscopy (OCM) and also enables the generation of images similar to confocal microscopy by summing signals in the axial direction. High speed, three-dimensional OCT imaging can provide comprehensive data which combines the advantages of optical coherence tomography and microscopy in a single system.},

abstract = {The early steps in the photocycle of the bacterial proton pump proteorhodopsin (PR) were analyzed by ultrafast pump/probe spectroscopy to compare the rate of retinal isomerization at alkaline and acidic pH values. At pH 9, the functionally important primary proton acceptor (Asp97, pKa = 7.7) is negatively charged; consequently, a reaction cycle analogous to the archaeal bacteriorhodopsin (BR) is observed. The excited electronic state of PR displays a pronounced biphasic decay with time constants of 400 fs and 8 ps. At pH 6 where Asp97 is protonated a similar biphasic decay is observed, although it is significantly slower (700 fs and 15 ps). The results indicate, in agreement to similar findings in other retinal proteins, that also in PR the charge distribution within the chromophore binding pocket is a major determinant for the rate and the efficiency of the primary reaction. }

If these systems show a strong electronic coupling they are amongst the fastest known ET systems with transfer times of less than 10 fs. In the first part a detailed discussion of the direct observation of an ET reaction with a time constant of about 6 fs will be given, with an accompanying argumentation concerning possible artifacts or other interfering signal contributions. In a second part we will try to give a simple picture for the scenario of such superfast ET reactions and one main focus will be the discussion of electronic dephasing and its consequences for the ET reaction. The actual ET process can be understood as a kind of dispersion process of the initially located electron into the colloid representing a real motion of charge density from the alizarin to the colloid.},

  abstract={This study investigates the systems alizarin as well as coumarin 343 coupled onto TiO/sub 2/ nanoparticles with a femtosecond pump/probe setup. The investigation applies sub 20 fs pump pulses, provided by a noncollinear optical parametric amplifier (NOPA) and a supercontinuum generated in CaF/sub 2/ for a ultrabroadband detection covering a spectral range from 300-960 nm. This work also studies coherent wavepacket propagation succeeding electron transfer at the two systems alizarin/coumarin on TiO/sub 2/. Due to the superfast time scale of the investigated electron transfer (ET) reactions of about 4-7 fs the systems show fundamental differences to conventional molecular ET systems. The ET process is no longer mediated by molecular vibrations and therefore classical molecular ET theories lose their applicability. Results show the real-time coherent excitation of molecular vibrational eigenmodes directly by the ET reaction as well as the generation of phonons during polaron formation in the TiO/sub 2/ lattice. The presented investigations in combination with the classification of the appearing mechanisms could be the basis for an extension of molecular ET theories to superfast systems typically found at molecule/solid state interfaces.},

abstract = {Investigations on the ultrafast electron injection and recombination mechanism from the dyes alizarin and coumarin 343 to wide band gap semiconductor colloids in solution are presented, combined with detailed studies on population, depopulation and relaxation phenomena. We discuss transient absorption measurements on time scales from 100 fs to >1 ns throughout the visible spectral range (350–650 nm), allowing the simultaneous time resolved observation of signals assigned to ground state, cation and injected electron in the conduction band of the semiconductor. Analysis of transient absorption changes in the near UV region, where cation absorption is dominant, allows unambiguous assignment of the various kinetic components. This facilitates the distinction between the different contributions of the various absorbing species also in the congested visible spectral range. Comparison between the two dyes with respect to their different electron transfer parameters provides a direct way to analyze the influence of the electronic coupling element V on the injection and recombination process. Detailed inspection of the decay related spectra for both samples yields information on the environmental response succeeding the cation formation.}

abstract = {We report the drastic improvement of output parameters of femtosecond noncollinear optical parametric amplifiers by applying supercontinuum seed pulses generated in CaF2 instead of sapphire and imaging via all reflective optics. Features of the setup are broad amplification bandwidths up to 310 THz (470–910 nm), an almost Gaussian beam profile, a divergence with M2 factor of less than 1.4, pulse to pulse energy fluctuations of less than 2.5% and compressibility of the pulses down to 16 fs. The high intensity of the supercontinuum seed pulse (80 nJ) yields a quantum efficiency for the conversion of pump to signal of more than 30%. Even for short wavelengths e.g. at 470 nm pulse energies above 30 μJ were obtained for 110 μJ of 400 nm pump light.}
