We have developed a number of new methods for studying the photodissociation of these specieshave resulting from infrared excitation. Recently we have made use of large DC electric fields to orient the parent complex prior to dissociation. This talk will outline the influence this initial orientation has on the photofragment angular distributions measured using a rotatable optothermal instrument. A number of systems will be discussed, with the emphasis being on the $N_{2}-HF$ complex for which we now have a complete assignment of the final rotational/vibrational/translational state distributions of both fragments, along with the intermolecular scalar correlations. Conservation of energy is then used to determine the dissociation energy of the complex. en_US dc.format.extent 87807 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title PHOTODISSOCIATION OF ORIENTED MOLECULES: APPLICATION TO THE $N_{2}-HF$ COMPLEX en_US dc.type article en_US
