    Autoionization to the lowest spin component of the ground state of the ion has been studied for the following alkyl iodides in the gas phase: CH3I, C2H5I, and nC3H7I. Measurements have been made using the constant ionic state (CIS) method for photon energies between the ionization potentials...

    The coupling of a Rydberg electron to the vibrational motion is discussed in the intermediate regime in which the orbital period is long on the scale of the vibrational motion but is still considerably faster than the rotation of the core. Two dimensionless variables characterize the dynamics:...

    We report the observation of sharp autoionization structure in the two-color photoionization efficiency (PIE) spectrum of the I20 (1B2) band of jet-cooled aniline. The energy onset of this structure allows us to assign it to vibrational autoionization of high lying neutral Rydberg states with...
