Abstract

Abstract The ultrafast dissociation dynamics of condensed water and ammonia by resonant core electron excitations have been studied by measuring the kinetic energy distributions of H+-ions desorbed by [N1s]4a1 and [O1s]4a1 excitations as a function of detuning, Δhν, from the center of the resonance. While the most probable ion energy varies monotonically with Δhν for both systems, the centers of gravity of the kinetic energy distributions are minimal at resonance and shift to higher kinetic energy with detuning to either lower or higher hν. This behavior is explained by contributions from bond evolution processes before and after the core hole decay.
