Abstract [en]

Photon-induced fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to study the fragmentation of the water molecule at the O 1s is edge. Fluorescence emission has been observed from the neutral fragments H, O and OH as well as from the ionic fragments O+ and OH+. The extracted fluorescence yields of the H Lyman-alpha emission and O 2p(3)(S-4)3p(P-3) -> 2p(3)(S-4)3s(S-3) transitions show the same structures as the total ion yield spectrum but with different relative intensities. The most intense fluorescence emission is restricted to the region of the core excitations, while above the O 1s ionization limit the signal is much weaker (in the case of H) or below the detection limit (O, OH and OH+). The fluorescence emission is concluded to follow from the following general cascade: the core-excited states decay by resonant Auger transitions, the final states reached undergo dissociation into ionic and neutral fragments, and fluorescence occurs from excited fragments. In the case of the OH (A(2)Sigma(+) -> X-2 Pi) emission, the decay of core-excited states through soft x-ray emission may also be responsible for the observed fluorescence.

Abstract [en]

This thesis presents experimental results on molecular spectroscopy of gas phase molecules using synchrotron radiation. It deals mainly with dynamical processes following resonant excitation of electrons from core and inner-valence shells of the following systems H2O, H2, SF6 and CD4. In order to reach these deep electrons and excite them photons in the energy range from 25 to 550 eV were used, depending on the particular system.

Two experimental techniques are used. Photon induced fluorescence spectroscopy is used to study the fluorescence emission of fragments after the decay of resonant coreexcited states for the water molecule, and after doubly excited states and resonant excitations of inner-shell electrons for H2 and SF6 respectively. Only the emission in the visible and near infrared range (300-900nm) and the Lyman-α transitions are measured. Energy resolved electron-ion coincidence is used for the study of the fragmentation of CD4 and SF6 after selective ionisation of one of the outer-valence orbitals. In the case of CD4 the fragmentation is compared for the cases in which the ionisation is done directly, or through participator Auger decay of different resonantly core-excited states.

Abstract [en]

This thesis summarises the experimental results on molecular spectroscopy of gas phase molecules using synchrotron radiation in the UV- VUV and soft-X rays regions. The results of applying Photon Induced Fluorescence Spectroscopy (PIFS) to D2, H2S, H2O and pyrimidine are presented and discussed. Both inner and outer shell excitations of free molecules lead to different relaxation processes. However, a common result is that when the molecule breaks and the resulting neutral fragments are left in an excited state, they might fluoresce in the UV- Vis range. PIFS technique has two main advantages, it permits to detect neutral fragments and to identify the fluorescing species. From this fact, we can infer dissociation channels and trace back the electronic processes that led to the fluorescence. For these molecules we have analysed and interpreted both dispersed and undispersed fluorescence. What motivates our work is the lack of fluorescence studies and in a more general sense, to contribute to the knowledge of important molecules for life such as water and pyrimidine.
