The ultrafast decay rates of photoexcited View the MathML source ions have been measured in the condensed phase. The mechanism for decay is internal conversion, and the decay rate is a strong function of the charge on the ion. A bottleneck in the ground state recovery has also been detected, and its interpretation is discussed.
