Ultra fast time resolved electron diffraction is an excellent technique to study dynamic processes on the femto- and picosecond timescale after excitation by a fs laser pulse. In our experiment we combine the time resolution of a pump-probe set up with the surface sensitivity of a UHV-RHEED (reflection high energy electron diffraction) [1, 2]. In this talk different examples for the application of TRRHEED in surface physics will be presented, as analysis of the heat transport in hetero films [3, 4], energy dissipation in adsorbate systems after vibrational excitation and the dynamics of surface phase transitions [5].
