    Abstract

    Employing photon-echo techniques with extremely short laser pulses that consist of only few optical cycles, we investigate the dynamics of the equilibrated hydrated electron. The pure dephasing time of the hydrated electron deduced from the measurements is similar to1.6 fs. The shape of the absorption spectrum is described excellently by an extended Lorentzian contour the spectral width of which is fully determined by the pure dephasing time.
