Time Resolved Infrared Spectroscopy of Metal Oxides and Interfaces

The fate of electrons injected into the conduction band of metal oxide materials that are commonly used in sensitized solar cells can be monitored in the infrared by <100 fs time resolution. The same technique can be used to monitor the vibrational spectra and structural change in molecular sensitizers during interfacial charge injection. Here, details of femtosecond visible-pump/IR-probe transient absorption spectroscopy and some typical spectroscopic data revealing the mechanism of the electron injection process are described.
