Abstract:

The research supported by this grant is centered on probing the spectroscopy and dynamics of a variety of transient species using two anion photodetachment techniques photoelectron spectroscopy and zero electron kinetic energy spectroscopy. Most of the research effort was devoted to the transition state spectroscopy of reactions involving H atom abstraction by fluorine atoms. We have also measured electron affinities of several radicals, and have characterized several of the excited electronic states O3 for the first time. Finally, we have begun studying weakly bound clusters in which a halide ion is solvated by known number of CO2 molecules.
