Paper Abstract

Dissociation and desorption of physisorbed on a transparent fused quartz surface halogenomethane molecules induced by their absorption of UV excimer laser radiation have been investigated. The desorption has occurred to be a nonlinear photoprocess. It required from 5 to 7 UV photons, which were not absorbed simultaneously. A desorption mechanism based on excitation of adsorption bond in course of several cycles of one-photon absorption followed by electron-vibrational relaxation has been proposed. Then the one-photon absorption spectra of these adsorbed molecules should be spread to much longer wavelengths compared with that of the gaseous species. A one-photon dissociation has taken place only for halogenomethane molecules that could be photolyzed by such excimer lasers in gaseous phase. A multiple photon dissociation of some molecules has been observed as a result of direct multiphoton absorption, successive fragmentation or photolysis of vibrationally photoexcited species.
