Paper Abstract

The photoionization cross section of excited atomic selenium, Se(1S0), obtained by photodissociation of 0CSe, has been measured in the wavelength region 170 - 175 nm using a tunable xenon laser. A minimum value, at 172 nm, was found to be 1.2 x 10-20cm2, approximately ten times less than a recently calculated value. The photodissociation cross section for OCSe, at the same wavelength, was found to be 0.8 x 10-16 cm2, in good agreement with published work. The effect of an electron cooling buffer gas upon the electron production from excited selenium was also investigated.
