Complex multi-stage relaxation and reaction pathways after optical excitation of molecules makes the disentanglement of the underlying mechanisms challenging. We present four examples that a new transient spectrometer with excitation fully tunable from the deep UV to the IR and 225 to 1700 nm probing allows for an analysis with greatly reduced ambiguity. The temporal resolution of about 50 fs allows to resolve all relevant processes.
