Abstract

The photofragmentation of HNCO using Resonance Enhanced Multi-Photon ionization allows for two dissociation channels to be studied: H+NCO and CO+NH. This experiment deals with the dissociation channel producing the CO and NH fragments. This channel was studied since previous experiments can confirm the results obtained from a newly developed ion imaging machine.

*Note: All research presented was conducted during the summer of 1996 at the University of Southern California with funding from The National Science Foundation.
