A Statistical Interpretation of the Rotational Temperature of NO Desorbed for Ru(001)
Journal of Chemical Physics
A simple model of the rotational state of NO prior to thermal desorption from Ru(001) surface is developed in terms of the rotational heat capacity. The predicted rotational temperature of the desorbed species is consistent with known data on this system. The model is extended to predict translational energy anisotropy in the desorbed NO.
