Abstract

In recent experiments Rose, Rosker and Zewail have used a femtosecond pulse to dissociate NaI and NaBr, and a second pulse to probe the “transition state” by LIF. Here we show that quantum calculations, on a model system with no adjustable parameters, reproduce the principal observed features.
