Photoabsorption and Photoionization Cross Sections of Pyridine in the Vacuum-Ultraviolet Energy Range

We have performed an experimental investigation into the interaction of vacuum-ultraviolet synchrotron radiation with pyridine molecules in the gas phase. Specifically, a double-ion chamber spectrometer was used to measure the absolute photoabsorption cross sections and the photoionization quantum yields from the ionization threshold to 21.5 eV. Moreover, photoionization and neutral-decay cross sections in absolute scale were derived from these data. In addition, the fragmentation pattern was investigated as a function of the photon energy by using a time-of-flight mass spectrometer and the photoelectron-photoion coincidence technique. Thus, the absolute partial ionization cross sections for each ionic fragment were obtained. Comparisons are made with experimental data available in the literature.
