Chiral Discrimination through Bielliptical High-Harmonic Spectroscopy

Denitsa Baykusheva & Hans Jakob Wörner
Molecular chirality plays an essential role in most biochemical processes. The observation and quantification of chirality-sensitive signals, however, remains extremely challenging, especially on ultrafast timescales and in dilute media. Here, we describe the experimental realization of an all-optical and ultrafast scheme for detecting chiral dynamics in molecules. This technique is based on high-harmonic generation by a combination of two-color counterrotating femtosecond laser pulses with polarization states tunable from linear to circular. We demonstrate two different...
