Abstract [en]

Following core excitation in an isolated molecule, ultrafast dissociation of one particular chemical bond can occur, where "ultrafast" is defined as taking place during the lifetime of the core hole, of the order of few femtoseconds. The signature of such phenomenon can be observed in resonant Auger spectra following core excitation. We present here an investigation of ultrafast dissociation following C 1s-to-sigma* core excitation in CF4, with high-resolution resonant Auger spectroscopy. We are able to characterize final states of both the molecular ion and the CF3+ fragment. We use two-dimensional (2D) maps to record resonant Auger spectra across the resonance as a function of photon energy and to characterize ultrafast dynamics. This method provides immediate visual evidence of one of the important characteristics of the study of spectral features related to molecular versus fragment ionic final states, and namely their dispersion law. In the 2D maps we are also able to identify the dissociation limit for one of the molecular final states.
