Wodtke Multiquantum Vibrational Excitation of NO Scattered from Au(111): Quantitative Comparison of Benchmark Data to Ab Initio Theories of Nonadiabatic Molecule–Surface Interactions Angewandte Chemie International Edition 51
Surface phenomena: Measurements of absolute probabilities are reported for the vibrational excitation of NO(v=01,2) molecules scattered from a Au(111) surface. These measurements were quantitatively compared to calculations based on ab initio theoretical approaches to electronically nonadiabatic molecule–surface interactions. Good agreement was found between theory and experiment (see picture; Ts=surface temperature, P=excitation probability, and E=incidence energy of translation).
