Abstract:Quantum state resolved molecular beam scattering studies of small polyatomic molecules from metal surfaces present new challenges for experimentalists, but provide unprecedented new opportunities for detailed study of polyatomic molecular dynamics at surfaces. In the current work, we report preliminary characterization of the scattering of formaldehyde from the Au(111) surface. We report the measured desorption energy (0.31 eV), and characterize the distinct trapping-desorption and direct scattering channels, via the dependence of the scattered velocity and rotational distributions on surface temperature and incident molecular beam energy. Finally, we estimate the trapping probability as a function of incidence energy, which indicates the importance of molecular degrees of freedom in the mechanism for trapping.
