A high-resolution magnetic bottle photoelectron spectrometer was used to acquire rotationally resolved photoelectron spectra following vibrational autoionization of fully quantum-state selected Rydberg states with $n=6$ and $n\sim 9$. The Rydberg states were excited through a $(2+1^{\prime})$ REMPI process through selected rovibrational levels of the $\tilde{C}(1,0,0)$ state. The photoelectron spectra provide considerable dynamical information on the mechanisms of energy and angular momentum transfer between the Rydberg electron and the ion core, and also give information which will be valuable for firm identifications for the Rydberg state transitions. The spectra directly display the degree of 1-mixing between different partial waves. en_US dc.format.extent 118933 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title ROTATIONALLY RESOLVED PHOTOELECTRON SPECTROSCOPY OF AUTOIONIZING STATES OF WATER en_US dc.type article en_US
