The ultraviolet photodissociation of N(2)O is studied by wave packet calculations using global three-dimensional potential energy surfaces for the two lowest (1)A' states. The incorporation of all internal degrees of freedom in the dynamics calculations is essential for a realistic treatment. The room-temperature absorption cross section is well reproduced, including the weak vibrational structures. Classical periodic orbits show that the latter can be attributed to large-amplitude NN stretch… CONTINUE READING
