NO chemisorbed on a Ni(100) surface at 170 K, has been desorbed with UV laser light (ArF, 193 nm = 6.42 eV) in the energy range of the most intense electronic absorption of the NO/Ni(100) system. The rotational and vibrational state distribution of the desorbing molecules is probed via laser-induced fluorescence. The desorbing molecules are vibrationally and rotationally excited. The rotational distribution is markedly non-Boltzmann. The velocity distributions are narrow and very different for various rotational states. They cannot be fitted to a Maxwell distribution. We believe that these results provide evidence for the resonant nature of the light-absorption-desorption process for NO on a Ni(100) surface.
