Mass-selected infrared photodissociation spectroscopy of V4O10+

Author affiliations


The gas-phase infrared spectroscopy of V4O10+ produced by laser vaporization has been studied in the spectral region from 7 to 16 µm. Mass-selected V4O10+ cations were stored in a helium filled radio frequency hexadecapole ion trap and excited using tunable infrared radiation from a free electron laser. The photodissociation spectrum was recorded by monitoring the V4O8+ yield (O2 loss) as a function of the excitation wavelength. Two absorption bands at 842 and 1032 cm−1 are observed, which are assigned to resonant excitation of the antisymmetric V–O–V stretching and V[double bond, length half m-dash]O stretching vibrations, respectively. Comparison to recent theoretical and experimental studies indicate that the absorbing species consists of a V4O8+ ionic core weakly bound to an oxygen molecule.
