Our femtosecond stimulated Raman technology has enabled us to capture images of one of the fastest chemical reactions in chemistry and biology, namely, proton transfer, and because we use a photoexcitation pulse, we can track proton motions starting from time zero. The application potential to develop better calcium-sensing biosensors is exciting since our protein engineering collaborators are taking the new structural dynamics insights to rationally design biosensors to image life processes and disease states.
