A study of the NO2+ ion by means of Auger spectroscopy, fast ion beam laser spectroscopy and ab initio calculations is reported. The photon induced Auger spectrum of NO was recorded. Potential curves for a number of electronic states of NO2+ were calculated by the complete active space SCF method in order to facilitate an analysis of the Auger spectrum. A photoabsorption spectrum of NO2+ was observed by means of photofragment kinetic energy spectroscopy and assigned to the A 2Π←X 2Σ+ transition. The two different experimental methods both give a value of 38.6 eV for the appearance energy of NO2+, which is entirely consistent with recent photoionization and double charge transfer results.

J.; Hochlaf, Majdi; Nisoli, Mauro // EPJ Web of Conferences;2013, Issue 41, p02004-p.1 

    We used velocity-map-imaging to measure electronic and nuclear dynamics in N2 molecules excited by a train of attosecond pulses. A time-to-space mapping of autoionization channel is demonstrated. It is found that the autoionization becomes energetically allowed when the two nuclei are still very...

    The photoabsorption, fluorescence cross sections, and the fluorescence yield of BCl3 are measured in the 45–106 nm region. Fluorescence spectra are dispersed to identify the emitting species. The emission observed at excitation wavelengths longer than 96 nm is attributed to the excited...
