Time-dependent approach to the double-channel dissociation of the NaCs molecule induced by pulsed lasers
The dynamics of the double-channel dissociation of the NaCs molecule is investigated by using the time-dependent wave packet (TDWP) method with the “split operator-Fourier transform” scheme. At a given wavelength and intensity of laser pulse, the population of each state changing with time is obtained. The photo-absorption spectra and kinetic-energy distribution of the dissociation fragments, which exhibit vibration-level structure and dispersion of the wave packet, respectively, are also obtained. The results show that by increasing the laser intensity, one can find not only the band center shift of the photo-absorption spectrum, but also the change of the fragment energy. The appearance of the diffusive band in the photo-absorption spectrum and the multiple peaks in the kinetic-energy spectrum can be attributed to the effects of the predissociation limit and the external field.
