Abstract [en]

The fragmentation of deuterated benzene (CA) in ultrashort intense laser fields (9 fs, 1 x 10(15) W/cm(2)) is studied by the ion-coincidence momentum imaging technique. Five two-body and eight three-body Coulomb explosion pathways from the trication (C6D63+), associated with the deprotonation and ring-opening reactions, are identified. It is found from the fragment momentum correlation that all the observed three-body explosion processes proceed sequentially via the two-body Coulomb explosion forming molecular dications, CmDn2+, with (m,n) = (6,5), (5,5), (5,4), (4,4), (4,3), and (3,3), which further dissociate into pairs of monocations. The branching ratio of the fragmentation pathways estimated from the number of the observed coincidence events indicates that the fragmentation is nonstatistical.
