Abstract : The photoionization efficiency curve of NO(+) was obtained using the argon continuum in the energy range 9.25 - 10.00 eV. Considerable fine structure is observed superimposed upon the vibrational steps of the NO(+) ionization curve, which is attributed to vibrational autoionization. This structure has been assigned to Rydberg series converging to the excited vibrational levels of the ground NO(+) ion (singlet Sigma(+)).
