Abstract

We investigate computationally the valence electronic excitations of the amino acid glycine prepared by a sudden nitrogen core ionization induced by an attosecond X-ray pump pulse. The created superposition of cationic excited states is probed by two-dimensional transient X-ray absorption and by three dimensional attosecond stimulated X-ray Raman signals. The latter, generated by applying a second broadband X-ray pulse combined with a narrowband pulse tuned to the carbon K-edge, reveal the complex coupling between valence and core-excited manifolds of the cation.
