 Title: THE OBSERVATION OF A NEW g STATE OF NAPHTHALENE BY MULTIPHOTON IONIZATION Creators: Berg, Jacqueline O.; Parker, David H.; El-Sayed, M. A. Issue Date: 1977 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: A resonance in the four-photon ionization spectrum of naphthalene at 470 nm has been found. This has been assigned to a two photon transition, to a g state lying at 42 500 $cm^{-1}$. A resonance at this same energy was seen previously by Compton et al.,$^{1}$ in a threshold electron impact spectrum. The possible importance of this state in the radiationless de activation of the one-photon-allowed states in this region will be discussed. Description: $^{1}R$. N. Compton, R. H. Huebner, P. w.
