Scientific results are summarized from a three year research program on
multiphoton ionization in aromatic molecules, clusters, and their ions. As originally
proposed, the studies elucida- a new cluster ionization mechanism, characterized
properties of long range intermolecular interactions, and investigated electronic
transitions of aromatic cations cooled in a supersonic beam. The studies indicate
that the new cluster ionization mechanism is highly efficient and dominates
conventional 1 + 1 resonant ionization. In the case of the dimer of the large
aromatic molecule fluorene, the results suggest that excimer formation competes
with a direct ionization process. Highly selective excitonic spectra have been
identified for several cluster species.
