Abstract

The photoelectron spectrum of the 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ) radical anion has been measured at 3.1 eV. Additionally, the ultrafast relaxation dynamics of the first excited state (12B3u) of TCNQ have been studied using time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy, which reveals that it undergoes internal conversion back to the ground state (2B2g) with an associated lifetime of 650 fs and shows evidence of coherent nuclear motion.
