Publication# Absorption by dissociative continua in condensed matter: H2O in rare gas and ice matrixes

Abstract

The absorption spectrum of H2O in Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe and ice matrixes in the region of the 1st ~A 1B1 continuum is reported. Substantial blue gas-to-matrix shifts are obsd. for the max., which increase with decreasing matrix cage size. The absorption thresholds show much weaker shifts. These features are interpreted in terms of Rydbergization of the (3s/4a1) MO correlated to the ~A state. The photochem. is strongly affected by the environmental effects on the excited state potential surface. An energy threshold to photodissocn. is confirmed, consistent with a potential barrier due to the cage and a prompt exit of the H fragment. The photodissocn. quantum yield shows a linear dependence with excess kinetic energy in Ar and Xe matrixes, in agreement with recent MD simulations also favoring prompt exits as the dominant mechanism to permanent dissocn.

Linear independence

In the theory of vector spaces, a set of vectors is said to be if there exists no nontrivial linear combination of the vectors that equals the zero vector. If such a linear combination exists, then the vectors are said to be . These concepts are central to the definition of dimension. A vector space can be of finite dimension or infinite dimension depending on the maximum number of linearly independent vectors. The definition of linear dependence and the ability to determine whether a subset of vectors in a vector space is linearly dependent are central to determining the dimension of a vector space.

Linear combination

In mathematics, a linear combination is an expression constructed from a set of terms by multiplying each term by a constant and adding the results (e.g. a linear combination of x and y would be any expression of the form ax + by, where a and b are constants). The concept of linear combinations is central to linear algebra and related fields of mathematics. Most of this article deals with linear combinations in the context of a vector space over a field, with some generalizations given at the end of the article.

Linear subspace

In mathematics, and more specifically in linear algebra, a linear subspace or vector subspace is a vector space that is a subset of some larger vector space. A linear subspace is usually simply called a subspace when the context serves to distinguish it from other types of subspaces. If V is a vector space over a field K and if W is a subset of V, then W is a linear subspace of V if under the operations of V, W is a vector space over K.
