Ultrafast Predissociation Dynamics of Isolated Small Molecules from UV Resonance Raman Depolarization Ratios
Resonance Raman depolarization ratios and bandshapes are described as a probe of ultrafast dissociation dynamics of small gas phase molecules. The role of a finite laser bandwidth in inducing incoherent “fluorescence” emission is discussed. Applications to the predissociative S3 state of CS2 vapor are shown.
