Abstract:

The nascent quantum state distributions of CN X2 Sigma fragments produced in the dissociation of ClCN and BrCN by photolysis at 193nm, in an effusive beam have been measured. The rotational distribution of the fragments is highly excited. The results show that the excited electronic state which dissociates is bent. A simple parameterization is shown to fit the results. This parameterization is based on a classical model which has dynamical implications. Author
