Fragmentation Pathways in a Series of CH3COX Molecules in the Strong Field Regime†


In intense laser fields, fragment ions can be produced from CH3COX (X ) CH3, CF3, and C6H5) either by absorption and dissociation followed by ionization (ADI) or absorption and ionization followed by dissociation (AID). Electronic structure calculations were carried out using Hartree-Fock, density functional, and correlated levels of theory to understand… (More)
