  5. The exchange of enantiomers in formamide is induced by an asymmetric excitation using circularly polarized light. This chiral process is detected using a spatial-structured X-ray beam carrying orbital angular momentum.

  7. We propose a time–frequency resolved spectroscopic technique which employs nonlinear interferometers to study exciton–exciton scattering in molecular aggregates. A higher degree of control over the contributing Liouville pathways is obtained as compared to classical light. We show how the nonlinear response can be isolated from the orders-of-magnitude stronger linear background by either phase matching or polarization filtering. Both arise due to averaging the signal over a large number of noninteracting, randomly oriented molecules. We apply our technique to the Frenkel exciton model which excludes charge separation for the photosystem II reaction center. We show how the sum of the entangled photon frequencies can be used to select two-exciton resonances, while their delay times reveal the single-exciton levels involved in the optical process.

  9. In this theoretical study, we show how photoelectron signals generated by time-energy entangled photon pairs can monitor ultrafast excited state dynamics of molecules with high joint spectral and temporal resolutions, not limited by the Fourier uncertainty of classical light. This technique scales linearly, rather than quadratically, with the pump intensity, allowing the study of fragile biological samples with low photon fluxes. Since the spectral resolution is achieved by electron detection and the temporal resolution by a variable phase delay, this technique does not require scanning the pump frequency and the entanglement times, which significantly simplifies the experimental setup, making it feasible with current instrumentation. Application is made to the photodissociation dynamics of pyrrole calculated by exact nonadiabatic wave packet simulations in a reduced two nuclear coordinate space. This study demonstrates the unique advantages of ultrafast quantum light spectroscopy.

  10. The infrared response of a system of two vibrational modes in a cavity is calculated by an effective non-Hermitian Hamiltonian derived by employing the nonequilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalism. Degeneracies of the Hamiltonian (exceptional points, EPs) widely employed in theoretical analysis of optical cavity spectroscopies are used in an approximate treatment and compared with the full NEGF. Qualitative limitations of the EP treatment are explained by examining the approximations employed in the calculation.
