Energy Dissipation in Small Clusters: Direct Photoemission, Dissociation, and Thermionic Emission.


The competition between electron emission and unimolecular dissociation following the absorption of a single photon is studied for small clusters of various elements. Electron emission results from either direct photoemission, observed as a series of peaks in the spectrum, or thermionic emission, giving rise to a continuous background. Depending on the… (More)
