Observation of rotational polarization produced in molecule-surface collisions

View publication

Abstract

The rotational polarization produced by scattering a rotationally cold beam of NO from Ag(111) has been measured by laser-induced fluorescence. A strong rotational polarization perpendicular to the surface normal is observed. The degree of polarization depends strongly on final rotational state, incident energy, and incident angle. © 1982 The American Physical Society.
