Interference between dissociating states in H2O2 and HOCl causes orientation of OH diatomic products

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


H2O2 and HOCl were dissociated using circularly polarized light at wavelengths 330-370 nm, and angular-momentum polarization of OH ((2)Pi) products was measured using laser induced fluorescence. The OH (J = 0.5) products exhibit orientation of angular momenta resulting from interference between excited dissociating. states of the parent molecules.
