Slow electron velocity-map imaging: a new probe of radicals, clusters,

Slow electron velocity-map imaging (SEVI) of negative ions is a high resolution variant of photoelectron spectroscopy that uses imaging to collect and analyze photodetached electrons. We show how this method provides unprecedented insights into the vibronic spectroscopy and dynamics of a variety of transient species, including reactive free radicals, clusters, pre-reactive complexes, and transition states.
