We report high resolution photoelectron imaging spectra of Cu and Cu (H2O)n (n = 1,2) complexes. With the least bound electron principally localized on the metal, electron photodetachment produces neutral states that are best characterized by the atomic metal state plus a water molecule: [Cu (S), H2O], [Cu ( D5/2), H2O], and [Cu ( D3/2), H2O]. The large Cu(More)
A combination of experimental methods, photoelectron-imaging spectroscopy, flowing afterglow-photoelectron spectroscopy and the flowing afterglow-selected ion flow tube technique, and electronic structure calculations at the B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of density functional theory (DFT) have been employed to study the mechanism of the reaction of the(More)
The 364 nm photoelectron spectra of AuOand AuShave been measured. The electron affinities of AuO and AuS have been determined to be 2.374 ( 0.007 and 2.469 ( 0.006 eV, respectively. The electronic ground states of the neutral diatomics are Πi states, and the spin-orbit splitting between the XΠ1/2 and Π3/2 states is 1440 ( 80 cm-1 for AuO and 1280 ( 60 cm-1(More)
We report photoelectron imaging spectra of CuH and CuH 2 and their deuterated analogs. The CuH photoelectron spectrum exhibits transitions to the ground (X R) and lowest excited triplet (a R) and singlet (A R) states, with EA(CuH) 0.444(6) eV. The photoelectron spectrum of linear X Rg HCuH is dominated by a transition to the linear excited A Rg state with a(More)
Ultrafast pump-probe studies of I2- recombination in size-selected I2- (CO2)n cluster ions demonstrate long time coherent motions in size-selected clusters and the resulting non-statistical energy flow in the cluster. For I2- photodissociated to produce either I- + I or I- + I*, we identify a solvent-driven energy transfer process without a condensed phase(More)
