Abstract

Desorption of NO molecules from a Pd(111) surface has been induced by femtosecond visible laser pulses. Time-resolved measurements of desorption were obtained by means of a correlation technique. The desorption process was found to be characterized by a subpicosecond response, consistent with an electronic mechanism.
