Ultrafast infrared near-field molecular nano-spectroscopy
Department of Physics, Department of Chemistry, and JILA, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO 80303, USA
We demonstrate molecular radiative infrared vibrational free-induction decay on the nano-scale and its control via near-field coupling between the transient molecular polarization and optical antenna properties of the metallic scanning near-field probe tip. This allows for pushing the sensitivity of infrared vibrational spectroscopy into the single molecule regime.
