Excitation of Rydberg series in C60 was studied. The Rydberg states were observed in photoelectron spectra using ultrashort pulsed-laser excitation. The production mechanism was also discussed and the Rydberg states were modeled by solving the Schrödinger equation. Spectra of Rydberg series were observed for pulse duration as short as 100 fs.
