Title: Multiphoton ionization of lead monofluoride resonantly enhanced by the X{sub 1} {sup 2}{pi}{sub 1} at {sub {approx}}{sub sol{approx}} at {sub 2}{yields}B {sup 2}{sigma}{sub 1} at {sub {approx}}{sub sol{approx}} at {sub 2} transition

Abstract

Resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization of the X{sub 1} {sup 2}{pi}{sub 1} at {sub {approx}}{sub sol{approx}} at {sub 2} state of lead monofluoride ({sup 208}Pb{sup 19}F) via the B {sup 2}{sigma}{sub 1} at {sub {approx}}{sub sol{approx}} at {sub 2} state is demonstrated. The ionization potential is observed to be 7.54(1) eV. Limits on the lifetime of the B state are found to be consistent with that reported by Chen et al. The transition dipole moment for the X{sub 1}{yields}B transition is found to be 0.005(1) a.u. Limits on the ionization cross section of the B state are found.
