Abstract

Ruby laser-induced decomposition of azoethane gave products different from the near UV photodissociation. Therefore, although in some experiments product yields varied quadratically with laser power, the principal dissociation was not via two-photon photoexcitation. The two-photon photodissociation cross section is < 10-52 cm4 sec photon-1 molecule-1.
