Neutral fragmentation of super excited states in carbon monoxide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Neutral photodissociation of CO has been investigated using synchrotron light in the range 19-26 eV by observing dispersed fluorescence from excited neutral C atoms. Follow-up ab initio calculations support the observed neutral carbon excitation functions, which to a large extent are associated with the CO Rydberg series converging to the CO+ C and D states.
