Abstract

Laser induced fluorescence (LIF) and multiphoton ionization (MPI) spectroscopic techniques have been used to investigate the HCO radical produced in the UV photolysis of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde. The LIF study has yielded vibrational and rotational information on the ground and first excited electronic states. The MPI experiment has enabled the rotational energy distribution of HCO to be examined under collision-free conditions.
