We measured the absolute photo-emission cross section of the BC ℓ A → X system around 2720 Å produced by electron-impact dissociation of BCℓ3. The cross section reaches a maximum around 40 eV with a value of 2.5±0.5 × 10-18 cm2. A double-onset structure with onsets around 14 eV and 26 eV indicates that the excited BCℓ fragments are produced via two different dissociation channels.
