Neutral Dissociation of Superexcited Nitric Oxide Induced by Intense Laser Fields
- Received Date: 2010-04-26
Abstract: Superexcited states of NO molecule and their neutral dissociation processes have been stud-ied both experimentally and theoretically. Neutral excited N? and O? atoms are detected by fluorescence spectroscopy for the NO molecule upon interaction with 800 nm intense laser radiation of duration 60 fs and intensity 0.2 PW/cm2. Intense laser pulse causes neu-tral dissociation of superexcited NO molecule by way of multiphoton excitation, which is equivalent to single photon excitation in the extreme-ultraviolet region by synchrotron ra-diation. Potential energy curves (PECs) are also built using the calculated superexcited state of NO+. In light of the PECs, direct dissociation and pre-dissociation mechanisms are proposed respectively for the neutral dissociation leading to excited fragments N? and O?.
