Autodetachment Spectroscopy of Negative Ions

Abstract

One of the exciting developments in ionic spectroscopy in recent years has been the application of very high resolution spectroscopic techniques to the study of molecular negative ions. These studies provide an excellent opportunity to investigate the interaction between the weakly bound outermost electron and the vibrational and rotational degrees of freedom of the negative ion. Such studies also provide an important test of electron-molecule scattering theories, in that the photodetachment process can be viewed via detailed balancing as an electron scattering event with one (or a few) partial waves present.
