Abstract
We report experimental results on the state-to-state vibrational relaxation of CO(v = 17) in collisions with Ag(111) at incidence translational energies between 0.27 eV and 0.57 eV. These together with previous results provide a comprehensive set of data on two molecules (CO and NO)-one open and one closed shell-and two metals (Ag and Au). In all four cases, the incidence vibrational energy has been varied over several eV. We find a unifying relation between the probability of vibrational relaxation and the energetics of electron transfer from the metal to the molecule. This argues strongly that electronic friction based theories are not capable of explaining these data.
