The dissociation dynamics induced in (CF3I)n(CF3Br)m mixed molecular clusters by femtosecond UV radiation is studied. UV excitation and photoionization probing are used in combination with time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The process of electron-vibrational relaxation, which leads to the dissociation of clusters, is discussed. Data on the characteristic rates of the various stages of this process are obtained.



This work was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, grant no. 16-02-00139. Our experimental studies were performed on equipment at the “Multipurpose Femtosecond Spectroscopic Complex” of the Institute for Spectroscopy of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
