The Wigner method applied to the photodissociation of CH3I

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The Wigner method is applied to the Shapiro-Bersohn model of the photodissociation of CH3I. The partial cross sections obtained by this semiclassical method are in very good agreement with results of exact quantum calculations. It is also shown that a harmonic approximation to the vibrational ground state of CH3I is not adequate in this dissociation process.
