The Energetic and Structural Interpretation of Ion Photodissociation Spectra

  • S. P. Goss
  • J. D. Morrison


Ion Photodissociation (IPD) experiments permit optical spectroscopy to be performed on gas phase ions. Unlike classical absorption spectroscopy it is the effect of the photon, rather than the change in photon flux through the sample, that is measured. Charged particles are easier to count than photons, and the signal to noise aspects of distinguishing a small current from zero are much better than for a small change in a very large signal.
