Abstract

The previously unobserved O-2(b(1)Sigma(g)(+)) + O(P-3(J)) spin-forbidden photodissociation channel of ozone is identified following absorption in the Huggins band (335-352 nm). The nascent O-2(b (1)Sigma(g)(+)) photofragments rue detected by two-colour resonance enhanced multiphoton ionisation (REMPI) via the d3s sigma(g) (1)Pi(g) Rydberg state.
