Nanosicence and nanotechnology have been one of the most famous terminologies
in this several years for not only academic research fields but also
industrial applications such as cosmetic, health care, and so on. Regarding
the technology to inspect nanometer-scale topology, microscopes such
as an atomic force microscope and a scanning tunneling microscope were
developed and have served as the indispensable tool for the direct observation
of ultra-small structure with high resolution on nanometer scale or
less. Although the state-of the-art microscope technologies provide
the method to approach ultra-small structures with high-spatial resolution,
their time-resolutions have not been enough to investigate the chemical
and physico chemical reactions which occur on femto-, pico-, and nano-second
time scale. With respect to the spectroscopies of bulk materials without
spatial resolution, ultrahigh-time resolution have been achieved with
the advent of femto- or atto-second laser, which enables us to explore
many kinds of chemical reactions.
The objective of the present work is to elucidate nanometer-scale dynamics
of transient charges generated by radiations (photon and electron beam
in this case) in condensed matter (organic solvents, polymers, and organic
semiconductors). .....[full text; pdf file
