Abstract

Determining the product velocities offers one of the most direct and penetrating experimental probes of the dynamics of gas phase molecular photodissociation and bimolecular collision processes and provides an obvious point of contact with theoretical molecular dynamics simulations, potential energy surfaces, and non-adiabatic couplings between such surfaces. This perspective traces the development of the H Rydberg atom translational spectroscopy technique from a serendipitous first encounter through to the present, highlights the advances that make it the method of choice for studying many benchmark photofragmentation and photoinduced collision processes that yield H (or D) atoms amongst the products, and anticipates some future opportunities afforded by the technique.
