Investigations of Coulomb Explosion Dynamics

This chapter demonstrates the application of the PImMS camera to laser-induced Coulomb explosion imaging (CEI) of a substituted biphenyl molecule. The multi-hit capabilities of the device allow the concurrent detection of individual 2D momentum images of all ionic fragments resulting from the Coulomb explosion of multiple molecules during each acquisition cycle.
