About this book

Charged particle imaging has revolutionized experimental studies of photodissociation and bimolecular collisions. Written in a tutorial style by some of the key practitioners in the field, this book gives a comprehensive account of the technique and describes many of its applications. The book is split into two parts. Part I is intended as a series of tutorials. It explains the basic principles of the experiment and the numerical methods involved in interpreting experimental data. Part II describes a number of different applications. These chapters are more directly research oriented, the aim being to introduce the reader to the possibilities for future experiments. This comprehensive book will be of primary interest to researchers and graduate students working in chemical and molecular physics who require an overview of the subject as well as ideas for future experiments.

'! a must read for anyone interested in the latest in imaging methodology.' ChemPhysChem
