The collinear photodissociation of OCS at 157 nm
The absorption in OCS in the 160–140 nm region has considerable vibrational structure and has been assigned (Rabalais et al.) as a 1Σ ← 1Σ transition. The quantum yield for the production of S(1S0)Expand

Effect of molecular bending on the photodissociation of OCS
At 230 nm, the photodissociation of OCS via a hot band and a triplet state was investigated by selective probing of high rotational levels of product CO (J=45–67) with photofragment imagingExpand

The time evolution of the velocity distribution of hydrogen atoms in a bath gas
In this work we probe an ensemble of energetic hydrogen atoms dilutely dispersed in a bath gas which is at thermal equilibrium. A recently developed laser‐induced fluorescence technique allows aExpand

Time dependence of the fluorescence of the B state of CN
The alteration of the fluorescence of the B 2Σ state of the CN radical on collisions with foreign gases has been studied by their effect on the decay. A vacuum uv nanosecond flash lamp was used toExpand

Vibrational energy distribution of the CH3 radical photodissociated from CH3I
The n→σ* transition in CH3I at 257 nm produces mainly excited I(2P1/2) atoms and the available energy is mainly released as translation. A recent experiment by Y. Lee and co‐workers measured theExpand

Dynamics of the reaction of O(3P) atoms with acetylene
The first step in the reaction of O(3P) with HCCH is the formation of a complex, HCCHO which lives at least as long as a rotational period. The complex has two channels of dissociation, HCCO+H orExpand

Unimolecular dynamics of hydrogen atom release from excited cycloheptatriene, toluene, and p‐xylene
Hydrogen atoms from the photodissociation of cycloheptatriene, toluene, and p‐xylene were monitored by laser induced fluorescence using a tunable laser at 121.6 nm. The rates of formation of hydrogenExpand

Anisotropic Photodissociation of Cadmium Dimethyl
Cadmium dimethyl has been photolyzed at very low pressures with polarized light. The cadmium atoms are deposited perpendicular to the e vector of the light. The methyl radicals also moveExpand

One-Color Molecular Photodissociation and Detection of Hydrogen Atoms
The wavelength 205.14 nm is absorbed by many hydrogen-containing molecules, which then dissociate to form hydrogen atoms. These in turn can absorb two more 205.14 nm photons and reach the 3s or the...
