We discuss the vibrational and rotational state distributions of ground-state O2 following the photodissociation of O3 in the Chappuis band. They are obtained from time-dependent wave packet calculations employing ab initio potential energy surfaces for the 11A and 21A electronic states and the nonadiabatic elements, which couple these states. The satisfying agreement with experimental results underlines that the essential mechanisms of this two-state process are well described.
