Abstract

In this paper, we have calculated the rotational state distributions following the photodissociation of ozone in the Hartley band with total angular momentum J′ = 1. The calculated results are obtained by using time-dependent wave packet calculations on the Sheppard-Walker potential energy surface (PES). It is found that the physically more correct treatment with J′ = 1 semi-quantitatively reproduces the rotational state distributions of the CARS. Compared with the previous theoretical works, which had taken J = 0 on both the ground and excited potential surface, J′ = 1 treatment makes the rotational distributions of the fragment closer to the experimental ones.
