Abstract

A new two-colour optical-optical double resonance technique, involving unbound intermediate states, is described. This has been used in conjunction with mass-resolved resonance ionisation to study the molecules I-2 Cl-2, CH3I and the CD3 radical. Large bond extensions (approximate to 1 Angstrom) in the unbound intermediate state are observed, thus significantly extending the Franck-Condon region and allowing access to a wide range of molecular ion-pair and Rydberg states.
