Orientation effect on phot-fragmentation and ion-desorption from the topmost layers of molecular solids

Sekiguchi, Tetsuhiro  ; Ikeura, Hiromi*; Baba, Yuji  

Using a newly developed rotatable time-of-flight mass spectrometer(R-TOF-MS) and polarized synchrotron radiation, we have investigated orientation effect on fragmentation and desorption pathways occurring at the top-most layers of molecular solids. Reported will be polarization-angle dependencies of TOF mass spectra, high-resolution electron- and ion-NEXAFS in condensed formic acid, formamide and benzene. For condensed formamide(HCOND$$_{2}$$), marked orientation effect was observed for the enhanced H$$^{+}$$-yields following C1s $$rightarrow$$ $$sigma$$*$$_{C-H}$$ resonance. Direct photodissociation and charge-neutralization play an important role in the effect. For some fragment species, however, the bond scission showed no polarization dependence when dissociation sites were far from core-excited atoms. This is the case for N-D scission and D$$^{+}$$-desorption following C1s excitation, suggesting that indirect process governs, where secondary electrons would induce the fragmentation.
