Recent Developments in Studies of Open-Shell Cations Via Their Electronic Transitions
Some of our recent developments aimed at spectral characterization of open-shell cations by means of their electronic transitions will be outlined in this contribution. These involve on the one hand the use of the well established methods — laser excitation and matrix absorption spectro-scopy — to the study of the first fragment ion, C2 +, and on the other hand the application of new approaches based on stimulated emission pumping or two-colour absorption spectroscopy on mass-selected ions.
