We have investigated femtosecond coherent vibrational motions of Zn(II)-5,15-diphenylporphyrin in toluene using chirp-controlled ultrashort pulses. The oscillatory features superimposed on the temporal profiles of the pump-probe transient absorption signal are affected by the chirping and energy of excitation pulses. Using chirp- and excitation energy-controlled femtosecond pulses, we are able to obtain information on the structural changes between the electronic ground and excited states based on a comparative analysis of the Fourier-transformed frequency-domain spectra retrieved from the oscillatory components with the ground state resonance Raman spectra and normal mode calculations.
