Abstract
We present a detailed description of ultrafast electron diffraction and its applications to study photoinduced molecular dynamics at single crystal surfaces. Experimental investigations for a new design of an ultrashort pulsed laser activated electron gun ((tau) < 5 ps) for time- resolved surface analysis are described. In addition, a novel electron detection and image analysis system, as it applies specifically to time-resolved reflection high-energy electron diffraction in the multiple-shot operation, are reviewed. The total experimental temporal resolution is discussed in terms of the electron pulse width and the time difference between an electron scattered at the front edge of the sample to an electron scattered at the trailing edge of the sample.
