Investigates mu-v-j angular correlations of the nitric oxide photoproduct from linearly polarized 255 nanometer photodissociation of NO[sub 2] in a molecular beam. Measurement of rotational angular momentum orientation; Origination of the rotational orientation from the directionality of the torque responsible for NO rotational motion.

    We study vibrational predissociation of the HF dimer both by a full coupled channels treatment as well as in the Fermi golden rule approximation. Photodissociation cross sections, linewidths, and rotational state distributions are computed for excitations from the ground state with rotational...

    We present full six-dimensional calculations of the bound states of the HF dimer for total angular momentum J = 0,1 and of the quasibound states for J = 0 that correspond with vibrational excitation of one of the HF monomers, either the donor or the acceptor in the hydrogen bond. Transition...

    We investigated the photodissociation dynamics of methyl formate-d (CH3OC(O)D) at 193.3 nm in a molecular-beam apparatus using undulator radiation as an ionization source. We measured kinetic-energy distributions, spatial angular anisotropies, and branching ratios of all photofragments....

    Quantum mechanical calculations of photofragment angular distributions have been performed as a function of the frequency of excitation, the lifetime of the dissociative state, the rotational level, and the rotational constant. In the limit of high J values and white, incoherent excitation, the...

    We describe the experimental implementation of a superluminal (i.e., faster than light in vacuo) polarization current distribution that both oscillates and undergoes centripetal acceleration. Theoretical treatments predict that the radiation emitted by each volume element of the superluminally...

    Photofragment translational spectroscopy was used to identify the primary and secondary reaction pathways in 193 nm photodissociation of chlorine azide (ClN3) under collision-free conditions. Both the molecular elimination (NCl+N2) and the radical bond rupture channel (Cl+N3) were investigated...

    The photodissociation of N2O at wavelengths near 130 nm has been investigated by velocity-mapped product imaging. In all, five dissociation channels have been detected, leading to the following products: O(1S)+N2(X 1Σ), N(2D)+NO(X 2Π), N(2P)+NO(X 2Π), O(3P)+N2(A 3Σ+u), and O(3P)+N2(B...

    Oxygen Rydberg time-of-flight spectroscopy was used to study the vacuum ultraviolet photodissociation dynamics of N2O near 130 nm. The O(3PJ) products were tagged by excitation to high-n Rydberg levels and subsequently field ionized at a detector. In agreement with previous work, we find that...

    The direct visualization of an atomic arrangement is essential for understanding the nature of materials. The rotation of forward focusing peaks in photoelectron angular distribution (PEAD) patterns excited by circularly polarized light with the opposite helicities are found to be the same as...
