We review recent theoretical studies of the photodissociation of ozone in the wavelength region from 200 nm to 1100 nm comprising four major absorption bands: Hartley and Huggins (near ultraviolet), Chappuis (visible), and Wulf (near infrared). The quantum mechanical dynamics calculations use global potential energy surfaces obtained from new high-level(More)
Dynamical studies of the recombination of O and O2 to form ozone are reviewed. The focus is the intriguing isotope dependence of the recombination rate coefficient as observed by Mauersberger and coworkers in the last decade. The key quantity for understanding of this dependence appears to be the difference of zero-point energies of the two fragmentation(More)
The absorption spectrum of CO2 in the wavelength range 120-160 nm is analyzed by means of quantum mechanical calculations performed using vibronically coupled potential energy surfaces of five singlet valence electronic states and the coordinate dependent transition dipole moment vectors. The thermally averaged spectrum, calculated for T = 190 K via(More)
Intersections of electronic states are recognized as natural molecular hubs routing initial photoexcitation toward specific products. In this Letter, we investigate a five-fold intersection between the 2,3(1)A' and 1,2,3(1)A″ electronic states of CO2 responsible for the ultraviolet absorption of the molecule between 120 and 160 nm. It is demonstrated that(More)
UV absorption cross section of CO(2) is studied using high level ab initio quantum chemistry for electrons and iterative quantum dynamics for nuclear motion on interacting global full dimensional potential energy surfaces. Six electronic states-1, 2, 3(1)A(') and 1, 2, 3(1)A(")-are considered. At linearity, they correspond to the ground electronic state(More)
The dependence of ozone recombination rate on the masses of oxygen isotopes is examined in the strong collision approximation by means of quantum mechanical calculations of resonance spectra of several rotating isotopomers. The measured DeltaZPE effect and its temperature dependence can be reconstructed from partial widths of narrow nonoverlapping(More)
Previously calculated resonance widths of the ground vibrational levels in the electronic states 1 (3)A" ((3)A(2)) and 1 (3)A' ((3)B(2)), which belong to the Wulf band system of ozone, are significantly smaller than observed experimentally. We demonstrate that predissociation is drastically enhanced by spin-orbit coupling between 1 (3)A"/X (1)A' and 1(More)
Three-dimensional diabatic potential energy surfaces for the lowest four electronic states of ozone with 1A' symmetry-termed X, A, B, and R-are constructed from electronic structure calculations. The diabatization is performed by reassigning corresponding energy points. Although approximate, these diabatic potential energy surfaces allow one to study the uv(More)
Ab initio quantum calculations have been carried out on the helium ionic trimer. The potential energy surface is accurately fitted, especially in the vicinity of the three equivalent minima. The spectrum of bound states for the zero angular momentum is computed and analyzed in detail. Energies and wave functions reveal several interesting features related(More)
A combined ab initio and quantum dynamical study characterizes a family of bent neutral carbon dioxide molecules in terms of their vibrational levels, electric dipole moment surfaces, and infrared spectra in the gas phase. The considered isomers include the dioxiranylidene form of CO2 with the equilibrium valence angle of 72°, belonging to the ground(More)
