Multiple oscillations observed in the rotational state population of molecular iodine(B) formed in the photodissociation of the molecular iodine dimer((I2)2)

Several oscillations are obsd. in the rotational state population of I2 B3P(Ou+) produced in the photodissocn. (I2)2 + hn -> I2(Bu',J') + I2(X). The initial excitation is above the dissocn. limit of the I2 B state. These oscillations are pronounced on some u' states, but not on others. For a given state u', the rotational state population oscillations essentially do not depend on the photolysis wavelength over the range of applied conditions.
