Abstract
We describe direct observations on a picosecond time scale of NO2 fragment formation from 264 nm photolysis of low-pressure nitromethane. Using laser induced fluorescence probing, we find that the population of ground-state NO2 products rises and saturates within <5 ps, with a measured yield of near unity. The experiments were conducted with a newly developed mode-locked Nd:phosphate glass oscillator/amplifier system which can generate energetic short pulses of high beam quality at repetition rates of 1/5 Hz.
