The ultraviolet photodissociation of jet-cooled ClO and BrO radicals Academic Article uri icon


  • A molecular beam source for jet-cooled ClO and BrO radicals was developed using an electric discharge in order to study the UV photodissociation dynamics of these species. In the photodissociation of ClO, the wavelength dependence of the dynamics was observed. In the BrO experiments, the bond dissociation energy was directly measured.
