Paper Abstract

The paradigm of surface femtochemistry, laser induced desorption of molecules adsorbed on metal surfaces is considered, first from a `traditional' point of view and then from a contemporary one, suggested by experiments over the past five years. The key is laser excitation of substrate electrons followed by inelastic resonant scattering from the adsorbate. Theory is developed within the framework of Gaussian wavepacket dynamics.
