Abstract : The photodissociation of OCS at 222-nm has been examined by using tunable vacuum ultraviolet laser radiation to probe the Carbon monoxide and Sulfur products. Products of both the monomer and polymer dissociation have been identified and characterized, with particular emphasis on vector correlations. The vacuum ultraviolet radiation used to probe the CO and S products is generated by four-wave mixing in magnesium vapor. The photodissociation of OCS at 157 nm and of Carbon dioxide at the same wavelength have also been investigated. Energy transfer between hot hydrogen atoms and CO(v=O,J=O) has been investigated by dissociating Hydrogen sulfide in a molecular beam containing CO and probing the CO product by VUV laser-induced fluorescence.
