Abstract

A novel method for the generation of free-radical clusters is presented based on UV photolysis of the corresponding closed-shell complex. Illusions is provided by the LIF detection of Ar-SH produced by 248 nm excitation of Ar-H2S. A simple ballistic model for this surprisingly efficient process is shown to account for the main observations.
