Dynamic Jahn-Teller effects in isolated C-60(-) studied by near-infrared spectroscopy in a storage ring

Abstract

We have measured the near-infrared absorption spectrum for isolated C-60(-) ions at room temperature. Two bands, at 9145 cm(-1) and 10460 cm(-1), have been identified in addition to the main absorption band at 9382 cm(-1), seen also at low temperature in a matrix. An interpretation based on the theory of dynamic Jahn-Teller effects is proposed.
