Rapid progress has taken place in the generation and application of femtosecond optical pulses. The impact of these developments is being felt in a broad range of scientific fields including physics, chemistry, and biology. This paper reviews the state of the art and describes the application of femtosecond techniques to the examination of nonequilibrium phenomena.
