Resonant Inelastic Scattering Spectra of Free Molecules with Vibrational Resolution
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Physical Review Letters
Förlag: American Physical Society
Inelastic x-ray scattering spectra excited at the 1s(-1) pi* resonance of gas phase O-2 have been recorded with an overall energy resolution that allows for well-resolved vibrational progressions. The nuclear wave packet dynamics in the intermediate state is reflected in vibrational excitations of the electronic ground state, and by fine-tuning the excitation energy the dissociation dynamics in the predissociative B' (3) Pi(g) final state is controlled.
