Summary

A review of several correlation techniques used to extract quantitative information from two-dimensional images obtained with fast-frame CCD cameras is presented. Three examples are discussed that demonstrate the power of these techniques for revealing field-induced dynamics: (1) the relative probability for Coulomb explosions of CO 2 6+ as a function of the angle between the molecular and polarization axes; (2) the relative probability for Coulomb explosion of CO 2 6+ and NO 2 6+ as a function of bond angle and (3) the kinetic energy release and its ability to distinguish enhanced ionization from screening.
