Abstract

Absolute VUV optical absorption cross sections for ozone have been measured between 325 and 110 nm (3.0-11.3 eV) using a synchrotron radiation source. Vibrational fine structure is resolved in Rydberg bands and comparison of this with the limiting bands in the photoelectron spectrum confirms that the order (increasing ionization energy) of the three lowest ionization bands is 2A1 < 2B2 < 2A2. Near-threshold electron energy-loss spectra have also been recorded. In these, in addition to the known triplet states between 1 and 2 eV, a low-lying triplet state has been located around 3.4 eV and several others between 6 and 9 eV. Characterization of the valence states (both optically allowed and forbidden) are discussed in relation to the results of early theoretical computations which seem to give a good account of the ozone spectrum.
