Infrared laser-induced photolysis of ethylene.

Ronald J. Corkum
The decomposition of ethylene by high-power infrared laser radiation has been studied. The influence of pressure, beam intensity, and irradiation time on the product distribution was investigated. Isotopic mixtures were also irradiated to gain insight into the mechanism and to investigate isotopic selectivity of the process. Changes in mechanism were apparent as the reactant pressure was varied. Evidence is present for a low pressure, collisionless, isotopically-selective multiphoton process. At higher pressures, collisions produce relaxation of...
