The principles of ultrafast pulse measurements are described. These principles are extended to outline a number of ultrafast experiments which interrogate molecular dynamics in the condensed phase. The response function formalism used to interpret ultrafast measurements is outlined and its application to multipulse spectroscopy is described.
