Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate the applicability of VUV pulsed laser radiation to photoelectron Spectroscopy of electronically excited states as well as ground states. The VUV lasers used here are based on: 1) four-wave sum mixing in Mg vapor giving continuous tunability from 140 to 160 nm; 2) third harmonic generation in Xe and Mg vapor (118.2 and 143.6 nm, respectively); and 3) an ArF excimer laser (193 nm). Two-color MPI experiments with these VUV lasers were successfully carried out for a few test samples, such as NO, aniline, and pyrazine, clearly indicating that these VUV pulsed lasers are promising future light sources.
