RESUMO

Electron transfer mediated decay (ETMD) is a process responsible for double ionization of dopants in He droplets. It is initiated by producing He+ in the droplet, which is neutralized by ETMD, and has been shown to strongly enhance the dopant's double ionization cross section. The efficiency of ETMD, the spectra of emitted secondary electrons, and the character of the ionic products depend on the nuclear dynamics during the decay. To date, there has been no theoretical investigation of multimode dynamics which accompanies ETMD, which could help to understand such dynamics in a He droplet. In this article, we consider the He-Li2 cluster where an ab initio examination of multimode dynamics during the electronic decay is feasible. Moreover, this cluster can serve as a minimal model for Li2 adsorbed on the droplet's surface-a system where ETMD can be observed experimentally. In He droplets, Li2 can be formed in both the ground X1Σg + and the first excited a3Σu + states. In this article, we present ab initio potential energy surfaces of the electronic states of the He-Li2 cluster involved in ETMD, as well as the respective decay widths. We show that the structure of these surfaces and expected nuclear dynamics strongly depend on the electronic state of Li2. Thus, the overall decay rate and the appearance of the observable electron spectra will be dictated by the electronic structure of the dopant.

RESUMO

The increasing availability of X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) has catalyzed the development of single-object structural determination and of structural dynamics tracking in real-time. Disentangling the molecular-level reactions triggered by the interaction with an XFEL pulse is a fundamental step towards developing such applications. Here we report real-time observations of XFEL-induced electronic decay via short-lived transient electronic states in the diiodomethane molecule, using a femtosecond near-infrared probe laser. We determine the lifetimes of the transient states populated during the XFEL-induced Auger cascades and find that multiply charged iodine ions are issued from short-lived (∼20 fs) transient states, whereas the singly charged ones originate from significantly longer-lived states (∼100 fs). We identify the mechanisms behind these different time scales: contrary to the short-lived transient states which relax by molecular Auger decay, the long-lived ones decay by an interatomic Coulombic decay between two iodine atoms, during the molecular fragmentation.

RESUMO

The photodissociation dynamics of roaming in formaldehyde are studied by comparing quasi-classical trajectory calculations performed on a new potential energy surface (PES) to new and detailed experimental results detailing the CO + H2 product state distributions and their correlations. The new PES proves to be a significant improvement over the past one, now more than a decade old. The new experiments probe both the CO and H2 products of the formaldehyde dissociation. The experimental and trajectory data offer unprecedented detail about the correlations between internal states of the CO and H2 dissociation products as well as information on how these distributions are different for the roaming and transition-state pathways. The data investigated include, for dissociation on the formaldehyde 2143 band, (a) the speed distributions for individual vibrational/rotational states of the CO products, providing information about the correlated internal energy distributions of the H2 product, and (b) the rotational and vibrational distributions for the CO and H2 products as well as the contributions to each from both the transition state and roaming channels. The agreement between the trajectory and experimental data is quite satisfactory, although minor differences are noted. The general agreement provides support for future use of the experimental techniques and the new PES in understanding the dynamics of photodissociative processes.

RESUMO

Auger decay is an efficient ultrafast relaxation process of core-shell or inner-shell excited atom or molecule. Generally, it occurs in femto-second or even atto-second time domain. Direct measurement of lifetimes of Auger process of single ionized and double ionized inner-shell state of an atom or molecule is an extremely difficult task. In this paper, we have applied the highly correlated complex absorbing potential-equation-of-motion coupled cluster (CAP-EOMCC) approach which is a combination of CAP and EOMCC approach to calculate the lifetime of the states arising from 2p inner-shell ionization of an Ar atom and 3d inner-shell ionization of Kr atom. We have also calculated the lifetime of Ar(2+)(2p(-1)3p(-1)) (1)D, Ar(2+)(2p(-1)3p(-1)) (1)S, and Ar(2+)(2p(-1)3s(-1)) (1)P double ionized states. The predicted results are compared with the other theoretical results as well as experimental results available in the literature.

RESUMO

Electronically excited atom or molecule in an environment can relax via transferring its excess energy to the neighboring atoms or molecules. The process is called Interatomic or Intermolecular coulombic decay (ICD). The ICD is a fast decay process in environment. Generally, the ICD mechanism predominates in weakly bound clusters. In this paper, we have applied the complex absorbing potential approach/equation-of-motion coupled cluster (CAP/EOMCCSD) method which is a combination of CAP and EOMCC approach to study the lifetime of ICD at various geometries of the molecules. We have applied this method to calculate the lifetime of ICD in Ne-X; X = Ne, Mg, Ar, systems. We compare our results with other theoretical and experimental results available in literature.

RESUMO

The equation-of-motion coupled cluster method employing the complex absorbing potential has been used to investigate the low energy electron scattering by CO2. We have studied the potential energy curve for the (2)Π(u) resonance states of CO2(-) upon bending as well as symmetric and asymmetric stretching of the molecule. Specifically, we have stretched the C-O bond length from 1.1 Å to 1.5 Å and the bending angles are changed between 180° and 132°. Upon bending, the low energy (2)Π(u) resonance state is split into two components, i.e., (2)A1, (2)B1 due to the Renner-Teller effect, which behave differently as the molecule is bent.

RESUMO

The equation-of-motion coupled-cluster (EOM-CC) method along with the complex absorbing potential (CAP) is used for the study of resonance in e(-)-N2 and e(-)-CO. Resonance position and width are studied as a function of bond length. We report the potential curves (PC) of the resonance states.

RESUMO

Interatomic Coulombic decay (ICD) is an efficient and ultrafast radiationless decay mechanism which can be initiated by removal of an electron from the inner-valence shell of an atom or molecule. Generally, the ICD mechanism is prevailed in weakly bound clusters. A very promising approach, known as CAP/EOM-CC, consists of the combination of complex absorbing potential (CAP) with the equation-of-motion coupled-cluster (EOM-CC) method, is applied for the first time to study the nature of the ICD mechanism. We have applied this technique to determine the lifetime of an auto-ionized, inner-valence excited state of the NeH2O, Ne(H2O)2, and Ne(H2O)3 systems. The lifetime is found to be very short and decreases significantly with the number of neighboring water molecules.

RESUMO

The equation-of-motion coupled-cluster method (EOM-CC) is applied for the first time to calculate the energy and width of a shape resonance in an electron-molecule scattering. The procedure is based on inclusion of complex absorbing potential with EOM-CC theory. We have applied this method to investigate the shape resonance in e(-)N(2), e(-)CO, and e(-)C(2)H(2).
