Title: The Infrared Spectrum of NN...CO+ Trapped in Solid Neon
Published: December 15, 2011
Abstract: Codeposition of a Ne:N2:CO = 200:1:1 mixture at 4.3 K with a beam of very pure neon atoms excited to their energy levels between 16.6 and 16.85 eV leads to stabilization in the resulting solid of sufficient NNCO+ for detection of its NN- and CO-stretching vibration fundamentals. Detailed isotopic substitution studies and density functional calculations for the various isotopologues support the identification of NNCO+ and permit estimation of the positions of two of its low-frequency fundamentals. A sufficient concentration of NOCN is also stabilized in the neon matrix for detection of its NO-stretching vibrational fundamental.
