Abstract

A versatile tunable VUV photofragment monochromator is described. The instrument uses a unique flashlamp and a single slit monochromator to produce the photofragments. A tunable dye laser is used to detect these fragments via laser induced fluorescence. The results of preliminary design parameter measurements are presented along with the first photofragment spectra obtained with this instrument. It is shown that the SNR is adequate to assign single quantum state photofragment distributions.
