Cluster calorimetry by femtosecond stimulated emission pumping : Excitation and evaporative cooling of I 2 À „ CO


Femtosecond stimulated emission pumping has been employed as a technique to prepare small clusters with well-known amounts of internal excitation. In this way I2 (CO2)4,5 clusters are prepared with 0.58 to 0.99 eV of internal energy. Subsequent evaporation of between two and four CO2 monomers from the primary cluster is observed as a function of excitation… (More)
