Abstract:

Measurement of the quantum state distributions of CN X2 Sigma State fragments from the photolysis of BrCN at several wavelengths between 193 and 266 nm shows that there is very little excitation of v 1 levels in the nascent distributions for photolysis below 230 nm. Above this wavelength, significant population is found in excited vibrational states. Scaling of the distribtuions indicates that the potential energy surface on which the molecules dissociates is simple. Keyword Photodissociation.
