We present a broadband two-dimensional transient absorption setup for the UV around 300 nm with a time resolution of 150 fs. A narrowband, frequency tunable pump pulse and a broadband probe pulse are generated from the output of a noncollinear optical parametric amplifier operated at 20 kHz repetition rate and combined in a spectrally resolved transient absorption experiment. The high repetition rate and low noise of the setup allow us to acquire high quality two-dimensional data as a function of time delay with an unsurpassed frequency window of 10,000 and along the probe and pump axis, respectively. The performance of the setup is demonstrated on 2,5-Diphenyloxazol dissolved in cyclohexane.
