I’m now officially a H-atomer. I’m lucky to have worked with Drs. Marchetti and Karsili on a study of 2- and 3-substituted thiophenols using the famous Bristol H Rydberg atom PTS. The first study to press since I rebuilt and resuscitated the rig in 2016.
I’ve been selected to give an oral presentation for the Spectroscopy & Dynamics Group at the inaugural Faraday Joint Interest Group meeting to be held 11-13 April 2017 in Warwick.
The UV photodissociation of 2-bromothiophene was the first study to make it to press from the Bristol velocity-map imaging (VMI) rig since being overhauled for multi-mass VMI and universal detection. Accepted a mere 16 days after submission, this invited paper will soon appear online in a Special Topic Issue of J. Chem.
Phys.focusing on “Developments and Applications of Velocity Mapped Imaging Techniques”. Stay tuned.
