Resonantly amplified vibronic symmetry breaking Academic Article uri icon


  • Using high-resolution photoelectron spectroscopy coupled to a high brightness synchrotron radiation source, the energy dependence of the vibrational branching ratio for exciting one quantum bending was determined for CO 2 4σ g-1 photoionization. It was found that this transition results from intrachannel coupling.
