Abstract: - Ionic photofragmentation of SO2 in the sulfur 2p and 2s regions has been investigated using monochromatic synchrotron radiation. Multistop time-of-flight mass spectrometry was used to collect photoelectron–photoion coincidence (PEPICO), photoion–photoion coincidence (PIPICO) and photoelectron–photoion–photoion coincidence (PEPIPICO) spectra simultaneously. Partial ion yields and partial ion-pair yields have been determined. Dissociation mechanisms of the productions of ion-pairs O+ S+ and O+ SO+ have been discussed briefly.
Keywords: Photofragmentation; Coincidence; Time-of-flight; Ion yield; Ion-pair yield
