Stereospecificity of molecular reaction products in time-resolved cooperative fluorescence

Abraham Ben-Reuven, Gershon Kurizki

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cooperative time-resolved fluorescence from a pair of identical atomic fragments emerging from a reaction (such as photodissociation) in a correlated singly excited electronic state, and its characteristic features of nonexponential decay and ringing, are shown to be a potential tool for studying the orbital specificity of the fragments. Specifically, these features can disclose their polarization relative to the recoil axis, their parity, and their separation velocity. The possibilities of observing similar cooperative effects in diatomic fragments, and their relation to stereochemical correlations, are also discussed.
