|Blackbody infrared radiative dissociation|
A special case of the infrared multiphoton dissociation process wherein excitation of the reactant ion is caused by absorption of infrared photons radiating from heated blackbody surroundings, which are usually the walls of a vacuum chamber. See also infrared multiphoton dissociation.
