Spectroscopy of h 3
Spectroscopy of H3+

Meilke et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 91, 063201 (2003)

“Solved problem” at low energy

How about near dissociation?

  • Nature of (rotation-)vibration states?

  • Radiative association: H2 + H+ H3+ + hn

  • Isotope exchange eg HD + H3+  H2 + H2D+


Accurate H3+

PES

Realistic potential energy surface:

Polyansky et al, Mol. Phys., 98, 261 (2000).

CO2 laser: 800 – 1000 cm-1

Detects H+

Creates H3+

H3+ + hn H2 + H+

Near-dissociation photodissociation experiment

of Carrington et al

Technique for characterising resonances
Technique for characterising resonances

  • Solve H0F0 = E F0for all E including > D0.

  • Solve H = H0 + il U(R)

    for F0 dropping bound solutions;

    i U(R) is complex absorbing potential (CAP).

    3. Vary l to identify resonances in complex plane.





Vibrational feshbach resonances
Vibrational (Feshbach) resonances

Width (G) > 1 cm-1

Too short lived to be important for photodissociation spectrum


Shape resonances rotational states trapped by centrifugal barrier
Shape resonances: rotational states trapped by centrifugal barrier

Complete model of h 3 near dissociation photodissocation spectrum
Complete model of H3+ near-dissociation photodissocation spectrum

  • Vibrational states @ dissociation + above

  • Rotational states @ dissociation + above

  • Resonances: lifetime effects

  • Dipole transitions: spectroscopy

Asymptotic Vibrational States (AVS)

  • Robust

  • Present in other (all?) molecules eg O3, NO2
