Abstract

We report the observation of the ultrafast relaxation of a quasifree electron to the localized excess electron state in water. Quasifree electrons were generated by photoionization of aqueous ferrocyanide solutions by the fourth harmonic of a mode locked Nd3+ laser. The rate of formation of the localized hydrated electron is ≈ 2 psec.
