Several years ago, we demonstrated that $C^{-}_{2}$ could be vibrationally excited by stimulated Raman pumping (SRP); in that study, we monitored the excitation by resonant two-photon detachment of the $anion^{a}$. Since then, we have been investigating other, more general methods by which we could monitor the success of SRP. Recently we have demonstrated that anion photoelectron spectroscopy can be used in conjunction with SRP for vibrational spectroscopy of $C^{-b}_{2}$. Currently, we are attempting to couple SRP with the vibrational predissociation of a weakly-bound reporter species; in particular, we are focusing on the $ArBrHI^{-}$ and $ArNCO^{-}$ systems. Together, these methods constitute a quite general method for studying the vibrational spectroscopy of gas-phase negative ions. Ultimately, we hope to use the vibrationally excited ions produced by SRP to extend our studies of the transition states of neutral bimolecular reactions by the photodetachment of anion $precursors^{c}$: for instance, by exciting the hydrogen-atom stretch in $BrHI^{-}$, we should be able to reach the transition state of the $HI + Br \rightarrow HBr + I$ reaction by photodetachment. en_US dc.format.extent 136283 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title VIBRATIONAL SPECTROSCOPY OF NEGATIVE IONS BY STIMULATED RAMAN PUMPING en_US dc.type article en_US
