Abstract

A coherent superposition of two electronic states of ozone (ground and Hartley B) is prepared with a UV pump pulse. Using the multiconfiguration time-dependent Hartree approach, we calculate the subsequent time evolution of the two corresponding nuclear wave packets and the coherence between them. The resulting wave packet shows an oscillation between the two chemical bonds. Even more interesting, the coherence between the two electronics states reappears after the laser pulse is switched off, which could be observed experimentally with an attosecond probe pulse.
