Abstract:The excited-state population of the C$_2$ $^1APi_u$ state produced in photolysis of S$_1$ acetylene was investigated. The pulsed UV laser (216.5 nm) excites acetylene into $J=8$ $e$-symmetry level of the S$_1$ $3^4$ level, and subsequently dissociates the S$_1$ acetylene into C$_2$ fragments. A frequency-modulated near-infrared probe laser beam is used to detect the C$_2$ population in the $^1APi_u$ state. The sensitivity and the fast response of the experimental setup has been verified by I$_2$ excited state measurements. The setup will be used to record the C$_2$ $A-X$ transitions, which are fitted with a Voigt function. The derived lineshape and line intensities will be analyzed, and we will use the information to calculate the $A$ state populations of C$_2$ and map the populations with time-resolution following the photolysis.
