Abstract

Isolated multiply charged anions exhibit a repulsive Coulomb barrier (RCB) towards electron loss. In this paper, the role of tunneling through the RCB in the delayed electron emission is addressed. Electron kinetic energy distributions of photoexcited fullerene dianions C842− and C902− have been measured with a velocity-map imaging spectrometer for delays of about 150 ns after the nanosecond laser excitation. On such spectra, delayed electron emission is unambiguously separated from direct detachment. These measurements display significant delayed emission below the RCB. A detailed-balance model including electron tunneling through the RCB has been developed. The very good agreement between the measurements and the model provides quantitative evidence for a thermal tunneling electron emission.
