Role of Nonvalence States in the Ultrafast Dynamics of Isolated Anions

Verlet, Jan R. R. and Anstöter, Cate S. and Bull, James N. and Rogers, Joshua P. (2020) 'Role of Nonvalence States in the Ultrafast Dynamics of Isolated Anions.', Journal of physical chemistry A., 124 (18). pp. 3507-3519.


Nonvalence states of neutral molecules (Rydberg states) play important roles in nonadiabatic dynamics of excited states. In anions, such nonadiabatic transitions between nonvalence and valence states have been much less explored even though they are believed to play important roles in electron capture and excited state dynamics of anions. The aim of this Feature Article is to provide an overview of recent experimental observations, based on time-resolved photoelectron imaging, of valence to nonvalence and nonvalence to valence transitions in anions and to demonstrate that such dynamics may be commonplace in the excited state dynamics of molecular anions and cluster anions.
