The photodissociation dynamics of N2O in the wavelength region of 203–205 nm was studied by velocity map ion imaging. A speed resolution of 0.8% was obtained using standard projection imaging and subpixel centroiding calculations. To investigate N2O dissociation starting from the excited bending levels in the ground electronic state, a supersonic molecular beam and an effusive beam were used. The photoabsorption transition probability from the first excited bending level in the wavelength region of 203–205 nm was estimated to be seven times greater than that from the ground vibrational level.

    The CH fragment from the 193 nm photodissociation of CHCl is observed in a molecular beam experiment. This fragment is formed in the higher-energy dissociation pathway, the lower pathway involving formation of CCl. Both the CHCl parent molecule and the CH fragment were detected by laser-induced...

    Molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations are used to study the vibrational properties of ICl adsorbed on an MgO(001) surface, and the photodissociation dynamics of the molecule after excitation to a 1Π electronic state. The electronic ground-state simulations show that ICl lies nearly parallel to...
