A procedure for the transformation from reactant to product Jacobi coordinates is proposed, which is designed for the extraction of state-to-state reaction probabilities using a time-dependent method in a body-fixed frame. The method consists of several steps which involve a negligible extra computational time as compared with the propagation. Several(More)
The state-to-state differential cross sections for some atom + diatom reactions have been calculated using a new wave packet code, MAD-WAVE3, which is described in some detail and uses either reactant or product Jacobi coordinates along the propagation. In order to show the accuracy and efficiency of the coordinate transformation required when using(More)
A new global potential energy surface for the N + N2 exchange reaction has been built from ab initio data. To overcome the difficulty of carrying out ab initio calculations for a large set of geometries the alternative strategy of fitting the minimum energy paths of the surface and their angular dependence using a modified LAGROBO functional form has been(More)
We present wave packet calculations of total and state-to-state reaction probabilities and integral cross sections for the nonadiabatic dynamics of the O((3)P)+HF → F((2)P)+OH((2)Π) reaction at hyperthermal collision energies ranging from 1.2 to 2.4 eV. The validity of the centrifugal sudden approximation is discussed for the title reaction and a(More)
Although formaldehyde, H₂CO, has been extensively studied there are still several issues not-well understood, specially regarding its dynamics in the VUV energy range, mainly due to the amount of nonadiabatic effects governing its dynamics. Most of the theoretical work on this molecule has focused on vertical excitation energies of Rydberg and valence(More)
An energy-based method is proposed for the diabatization of the OH(2Pi)+F(2P)-->O(3P)+HF(1Sigma+) reaction. It is demonstrated that the diabatic representation obtained is regularized, i.e., the residual derivative couplings do not present singularities at the conical intersections appearing along the reaction path. This method only requires the knowledge(More)
Wave packet simulations of the photodetachment spectrum of OHF(-) are performed on several electronic adiabatic states, two triplets and four singlets of neutral OHF. The transition moments to these six states have been approximated using the ab initio electronic wave functions of OHF(-) and OHF calculated at the equilibrium configuration of the parent(More)
Accurate wave packet calculations on the OH((2)Pi) + F((2)P) → O((3)P) + HF((1)Sigma(+)) reactive collisions are performed using a recently proposed coupled diabatic states. Adiabatic and nonadiabatic dynamics are compared in detail, analyzing the final state distribution of products. It is found that with the new surfaces a significant increase of the rate(More)
A theoretical study of the F(2P) + OH(2Pi) --> HF(1Sigma+) + O(3P) reactive collisions is carried out on a new global potential energy surface (PES) of the ground 3A" adiabatic electronic state. The ab initio calculations are based on multireference configuration interaction calculations, using the aug-cc-pVTZ extended basis sets of Dunning et al. A(More)
Global three-dimensional adiabatic potential-energy surfaces for the excited 2(3)A" and 1(3)A' triplet states of OHF are obtained to study the F(2P)+OH(2pi)-->O(3P)+HF(1sigma+) reaction. Highly accurate ab initio calculations are obtained for the two excited electronic states and fitted to analytical functions with small deviations. The reaction dynamics is(More)
