Abstract

A two-photon technique is reported for the measurement of relative cross sections for the photolysis of simple molecules into particular product channels. In a demonstration of this method, two independently tunable dye lasers were used to dissociate molecules of Cs2 sequentially for wavelengths in the range 445 to 505 nm, and then to excite the resulting products to determine the relative cross sections for the photolysis of the Cs2 molecules into each of the energetically possible product states.
