About the Book

This dissertation describes new quantum mechanical methods for studying the photon-induced dissociation of three-atom molecules, and is divided into three parts.

The first part studies the infrared multiphoton dissociation of ozone. A rotating-wave-like method is used to calculate the infrared laser frequency dependence of the dissociation probability. The effects of vibrational and rotational motion of the ozone molecule on the dissociation probability are studied.

The second part studies single-photon dissociation of HCN and ICN into H + CN and I + CN, respectively. A method for propagating Franck-Condon overlap information, based on quantum R matrix scattering theory, is developed to calculate changes in rotational and vibrational quantum states of the CN fragment during the dissociation half-collision.

The third part casts the single-photon dissociation theory into the finite basis representation and the discrete variable representation. The discrete variable representation simplifies the calcuation, without a loss of accuracy, by exploiting the fact that the CN fragment rotates little at small atom-diatom separations, where it interacts strongly with the H or I atom.
