Two-proton migration in 1,3-butadiene in intense laser fields

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ultrafast proton migration in 1,3-butadiene in an intense laser field (40 fs, 4.5 × 1014 W cm−2) is investigated by using Coulomb explosion coincidence momentum imaging. The spatial distribution maps of a migrating proton reconstructed for the two three-body Coulomb explosion pathways, C4H63+H+ + CH3+ + C3H2+ and C4H63+H+ + C2H+ + C2H4+, reveal that two protons migrate within a 1,3-butadiene molecule, prior to the three body decomposition.
