Abstract

Probing by intense-laser field dissociative ionization provides an unprecedented quantity of information about the motion of molecules on potential energy surfaces. Even the direction of motion and location of conical intersections can sometimes be deduced. In the molecules investigated, all processes are ultrafast, comparable or faster than the period of appropriate vibrations. Hence there must be a continuous pathway from the excited state down to the ground state of the product through easily accessible conical intersections.
