Intense tunable vibraüonal infrared pulses from a free-electron laser and from a 1aser.pumped optical parametric amplifier can be used to study molecular energy transfer in condensed phase systems. Specific examples discussed here are energy transfer at the active site of a protein, myoglobin, studied by infrared-infrared pump-probe techniques, and energy transfer in a high explosive, nitromethane, probed by infraredpump, antiStokes Raman probe techniques.
