The authors have used photofragment spectroscopy to study the near ultraviolet photodissociation of ICN at 37 550cm 266.2 nm by crossing an ICN molecular beam with a pulsed fourth harmonic neodymium laser. A mass spectrometer is used to measure the densities of both the recoiling CN and I fragments as a function of recoil direction with respect to the polarization direction of the laser light and as a function of flight time. From these measurements, the fragment center-of-mass distributions with respect to angle, total translational energy and total internal energy are calculated.
