    Schematic overview of the lowest eight electronic component states of the benzene cation, depicted as potential energy V in eV as a function of a dimensionless effective nuclear coordinate Q eff. The violet arrows represent the ionization by the pump pulse, the orange arrows the excitation by the probe pulse. The dashed black line corresponds to the appearance energy for dissociation producing C4H3+. The dashed-dotted green curves are a cartoon drawing of the time-evolution of a cation originally transferred to the E state and then undergoing a series of internal conversion processes to the D and subsequently to the B states, via the conical intersections indicated in the figure.
