A colliding-pulse mode-locked ring laser with a four stage Nd:YAG-pumped dye amplifier generates femtosecond pulses at 630 nm with a repetition rate of 10 Hz. Frequency doubling to 315 nm provides photolysis pulses, while continuum generation offers probe wavelengths for transient spectroscopy throughout the visible. Since "ordinary" hemoglobin and myoglobin have now been characterized on all time scales, it is appropriate to turn attention toward the comparison of proteins from different species, which vary in specific ways, and to model compounds which incorporate specific features whose function one wishes to understand. In this presentation, the prospects for such studies are outlined and early results are reported.
