Publisher:Ohio State University
The optical, two and three photon resonant multiphoton ionization and electron impact spectra of cis and trans-hexatriene were measured and analyzed. To aid in the assignments, two photon RMPI spectrum was also obtained with parallel linearly and con propagating circularly polarized light. Through the combined analyses of the data obtained for both molecules it was possible, for the first time, to absolutely assign the 3p-Rydberg transitions of these polyenes. These assignments and their significance in the general interpretation of the spectra of polyenes will be discussed.
