Paper Abstract

We use the photofragment ion imaging technique to investigate the 266 nm photodissociation dynamics of hydrogen iodide. We show the quantitative features of ion imaging by comparing determinations of photofragment recoil velocity distributions, product branching ratios and the HI bond dissociation energy with previously published results. Excellent agreement with previous experimental and theoretical results is obtained. The H atoms produced from this process are then used as reactants in the reaction of H + HI and H + D2. Imaging techniques are used to measure the velocity distributions of the products of these reactions.
