Jensen (Can. J. Phys. 98, 506 (2020). doi: 10.1139/cjp-2019-0395 ) presents theoretical justification for the claim that linear triatomic molecules are necessarily observed to be bent. The basis of

In Amano’s comment on Jensen’s paper, we notice two important misconceptions: (i) Amano overlooks the fact that all features special for a linear molecule originate in the double degeneracy in the

Electric field measurement of femtosecond time-resolved four-wave mixing signals in molecules.

We report an experiment to measure the femtosecond electric field of the signal emitted from an optical third-order nonlinear interaction in carbon dioxide molecules. Using degenerate four-wave

I, and other authors, have discussed in several recent publications that “linear” triatomic molecules (defined as having linear equilibrium structures) are necessarily observed as being bent on

Hydrogen atoms under magnification: direct observation of the nodal structure of Stark states.

This Letter reports photoionization microscopy experiments where this nodal structure of the Stark Hamiltonian is directly observed, providing a validation of theoretical predictions that have been made over the last three decades.

Ultrafast imaging of multielectronic dissociative ionization of CO2 in an intense laser field

Momentum vectors of fragment ions produced by the Coulomb explosion of CO2z+ (z = 3–6) in an intense laser field (∼50 fs, 1 × 1015 W cm−2) are determined by the triple coincidence imaging technique.

Complete Coulomb fragmentation of CO2 in collisions with 5.9 MeV u−1 Xe18+ and Xe43+

We studied the ionization and fragmentation of CO2 in collisions with 5.9 MeV u−1 Xe18+ and Xe43+ ions utilizing a position-and time-sensitive multi-particle detector. By coincident measurement of
