Indirect predissociation of the b′¹Σu⁺(v = 20) level of N₂ is studied experimentally by vacuum-ultraviolet photoabsorption employing synchrotron radiation and a Fourier-transform spectrometer, and interpreted with the aid of a quantitative model of interacting ¹∏u and ¹Σu⁺, bound and unbound states which solves the coupled Schrödinger equation. An observed rotationally-localised peak in the b′(20) predissociation linewidths is identified by the model as arising from an interaction with a...[Show more]
