    The influence of rotational state on the dissociation probability of H2 on Cu(111) has been investigated with 3- and 4-dimensional close-coupling wave packet calculations. Recent experimental results have shown that the energetic threshold for dissociative adsorption increases and then decreases...

    The predissociation of N[sub 2]O into the 1[sup 3]A[sup ′] and 1[sup 3]A[sup ″] dissociative states for the total angular momentum J>0 is studied by quantum dynamics calculations. The effective Hamiltonian for describing the predissociation is derived from time-dependent wave packet...

    The time-dependent wave packet technique is applied to the Golden Rule treatment of vibrational predissociation. The wave packet at time zero is taken as the product of the quasibound wave function and the coupling inducing predissociation. The rate for vibrational predissociation can then be...

    We present three-dimensional, time-dependent quantum studies on the van der Waals vibrational predissociation reactions of NeCl2, HeCl2, NeICl, and HeICl. A wave packet/basis set expansion approach is employed. The results for these systems agree reasonably well with experiment and...

    Collision induced dissociation and four center exchange reaction in H[sub 2](v[sub 1]=high)+H[sub 2](v[sub 2]=low) are studied by means of time-dependent wave packet calculations and within a three-degree-of-freedom reduced dimensionality model. The role of both—vibrationally excited and...

    The time-dependent formulation for vibrational predissociation of weakly bound complexes within the golden rule treatment is presented. The quantum wave packet propagation in this formulation eliminates the difficulty of strenuous long time propagation of the full wave function due to long-lived...

    Stimulated by experiments by Zewail and co-workers [Chem. Phys. Lett. 172, 109 (1990)], we perform quantum calculations on the long time behavior of a wave packet which moves on coupled electronic surfaces of the NaI molecule. Beat structures in the simulated femtosecond pump/probe signal are...

    A time-dependent quantum mechanical wave packet method was used to study the dynamics of the dissociative adsorption of H2 and D2 on a flat, static surface. A three-dimensional (3D) model was used in which the molecular rotational, vibrational, and center-of-mass translational motion normal to...

    Using real-time wave packet propagation we consider the effects of lattice recoil, inelasticity and surface temperature in strongly activated dissociation reactions of diatomic molecules at surfaces. The energy diagram governing the dissociation, modeled as suggested by electronic structure...
