Simultaneous imaging of both product ions: exploring gateway states for HCl as a benchmark molecule

Author affiliations

Abstract

Simultaneous imaging of both positive and negative product ions is used to exclusively study photoion pair formation free from interference of competing fragmentation channels. Resonance enhanced multi-photon excitation allows us to interrogate potential energy surfaces for vastly differing molecular geometries. 3D imaging provides complete fragment information. We applied the technique to HCl as a benchmark and identified the gateway state leading to photoion pairs. The approach can easily be applied to any molecule exhibiting a potential with an attractive part at large internuclear distances.
