Abstract : This is a general review dealing with experimental and theoretical aspects of laser photochemistry in the gas phase and condensed phases. The review is divided into two main sections: spectroscopy and molecular interactions and reaction dynamics. Topics covered under spectroscopy include single-photon and multiphoton processes, classical and quantum models, and selective (nonthermal) and thermal effects. The section on molecular interactions and reaction dynamics considers the interaction of intense radiation with gas-phase collision dynamics. In the liquid phase, the topics covered include laser light scattering, laser-induced chemical reactions and time-resolved studies using ultrashort laser pulses. In connection with the solid phase, attention is given to selective and thermal excitation and the role of multiphonon couplings, heterogeneous catalysis, and chemical vapor deposition and annealing with applications to microelectronics fabrication.
