Dissociative photoionization of N2O in the region of the N2O+(C 2Σ+) state, studied by ion–electron velocity vector correlation Academic Article uri icon


  • The (VA+,Ve,P) vector correlation method was extended to the study of dissociative photoionization of the N2O linear molecular, illustrated by photoionization via the N2O+(C2Σ+) ionic state. The ion-electron kinetic energy correlation diagrams enabled the identification of all the DPI processes producing the NO+, N+, N2+, and O+fragments. The resolution of the vibrational distribution of the NO(X2∏,v) molecular fragment in the [NO(X2∏,v)+N+(3P)] outgoing channel was achieved.
