Title: Infrared spectroscopy and photochemistry of NCCN{sup +} and CNCN{sup +} trapped in solid neon

Abstract

When a Ne:NCCN sample is codeposited at 4.3 K with neon atoms that have been excited in a microwave discharge, the infrared and near infrared spectra of the resulting deposit include a prominent peak at 1799.5 cm{sup -1}, previously assigned to {nu}{sub 3} of NCCN{sup +}, and several new absorptions at higher frequencies which are contributed by combination bands of ground-state NCCN{sup +}. The exposure of the deposit to near infrared and red light results in the appearance of two new absorptions which are attributed to CNCN{sup +}. The reverse isomerization occurs when the sample is exposed to near ultraviolet radiation, but the two new absorptions are regenerated upon subsequent irradiation with near infrared and red light.
