Communication: imaging wavefunctions in dissociative photoionization.
The dissociative ionization dynamics of excited electronic states of the xenon dimer, Xe(2), have been studied using velocity map ion imaging (VMI). A one-colour, (2+1) resonant excitation scheme was employed to first excite and then ionize selected vibrational levels of the Xe(2) 6p (2)[(1)∕(2)](0) 0(g)(+) Rydberg state. Cationic fragments were then detected by the VMI. The data provide an outstanding example of the reflection principle in photodissociation with the full nodal structure of t...Expand abstract
