Title: Attosecond xuv pulses for complete mapping of the time-dependent wave packets of D{sub 2}{sup +}

Abstract

We have shown that the whole time-dependent vibrational wave packet of D{sub 2}{sup +} ions can be reconstructed from the kinetic energy release of the D{sup +} ion pairs when it is probed with an attosecond xuv pulse. Such a full interrogation of the wave packet will pave the way for controlling the generation of tailor-designed wave packets for favorable chemical reaction paths, as well as for probing the time evolution of their interaction with the medium.
