The aim of this work was to determine the distribution of photofragments of the O₂ molecule in the Schumann-Runge continuum and bands, as well as their vector correlations and alignment parameters. Pontential energy curves were calculated ab initio using variational methods both in the equilibrium geometry and in the long range dissociation limit. To obtain the distribution of products, the molecule was dissociated in a molecular dynamics calculation, and the resulting vibrational wavepackets were analysed in the long range to obtain absorption cross-sections, yielding product distribution for the atomic |LS) states.
