Based on the possibility of multiphoton ionization of the inner valence electrons in polyatomic molecules, a model was proposed to predict the abundance of different fragments resulting from dissociative ionization of the polyatomic molecules interacting with short laser pulses. According to this model the fragmentation of these molecules occurs through multiphoton ionization of the inner valence electrons, which results in a molecular ion in an excited state. Through radiationless transition…
