We present a simple method to measure the dynamics of cross peaks in time-resolved two-dimensional vibrational spectroscopy. By combining suitably weighted dispersed pump-probe spectra, we eliminate the diagonal contribution to the 2D-IR response, so that the dispersed pump-probe signal contains the projection of only the cross peaks onto one of the axes of the 2D-IR spectrum. We apply the method to investigate the folding dynamics of an alpha-helical peptide in a temperature-jump experiment and find characteristic folding and unfolding time constants of 260 +/- 30 and 580 +/- 70 ns at 298 K.
