Schematic diagram of the potential curves of a diatomic molecule relevant to the predissociation process.
Schematic of two rotational energy states and with the same width and energies and , respectively. The area of overlap is hatched.
Rank laboratory frame anisotropy parameters for slow predissociation of molecules after summation over , , and rotational branches. The subscript index (0) indicates the axial recoil anisotropy parameters which are defined in the same way as the anisotropy parameters for direct photodissociation of nonrotating molecules tabulated in Refs. 51, 57, and 58.
Experimental values of the rank anisotropy parameters determined by Brouard et al. (Refs. 36 and 37) in predissociation of and at .
