An optical-optical double-resonance study of the Rydberg states of O-2. II. The np and nf (ungerade) states excited via single-rotational levels of the b (1)Sigma(+)(0g) valence state

Abstract [en]

The np (n=3-10) and nf (n=4-9) Rydberg states of O-2 converging on O-2+ X (2)Pi(1/2,g) and X (2)Pi(3/2g) have been studied between 75 000 and 99 900 cm-1 using optical-optical double resonance with multiphoton ionization. Three-photon excitation from single rotational levels of the initially excited b (1)Sigma(0g)(+) valence state was used to access these states. The nf states show a strong tendency towards (Omega,omega) coupling for all values of n, whereas the np states appear to be best described by (Lambda,S) coupling for nless than or equal to8. The intensities of some of the 5f bands are anomalously high due to accidental resonances with the 3s d (1)Pi(1g) Rydberg state at the two-photon level.

Abstract [en]

This thesis describes separate studies of high-energy Rydberg and ion-pair states in small molecules using resonant multi-photon ionisation spectroscopy.

* OODR/REMPI study of ungerade Rydberg states in O2

The energy region between 75000 and 99900 cm-1 of O2 has been studied using optical-optical double resonance (OODR) with resonance enhanced multi-photon ionisation (REMPI). Three-photon excitation via single rotational levels of the b(1Σ+g ) valence state was used to study np (n=3–10) and nf (n=4–9) Rydberg states converging on O2+X(2Π1/2,g) and X(2Π3/2,g). The excitation pathway picks out non-predissociated states that are singlet in the (Λ,S) coupling scheme – suitable for np states for n ≥8, or are linear combinations of equal weight of singlet and triplet-spin states in the (Ω,ω) coupling scheme which was found to be suitable for nf states for all values of n.

* OTR/RI study of Rydberg and ion-pair states in I2

Optical triple resonance (OTR) together with resonance ionisation (RI) has been used to study the ungerade manifold of molecular iodine between 57000 and 73000 cm-1 via the E 0g+(3P2) ion-pair state. Two 6s Rydberg states with 0 +u symmetry based on excited states of the ion core have been observed.

During this study we also observed electric-field-induced mixing of nearly isoenergetic rovibrational levels of the E0gP+(3P2) and D0u+(3P2) ion-pair states. Detectable mixing with an applied field of 1kV/cm occurs over a range of energy level separations of ≤0.3 cm-1.

* (2+1)and (3+1) REMPI study of pyrrole (C4H5N) The two- and three-photon REMPI spectra of Rydberg states of pyrrole (C4H5N) have been recorded using circularly and linearly polarised light. The spectra were compared to the single-photon absorption spectrum of pyrrole and a similar study of furan (C4H4O). Although the ionisation spectra of pyrrole were considerably weaker than corresponding furan spectra, a strong propensity for excitation of d series with two photons and p and f series with three photons was observed for both molecules. The totally symmetric nd-Rydberg series associated with the first ionisation energy, [A2]nd;A1, was identified from n=3 to n=15 and extrapolated to obtain IE1.
