The photoelectron spectrum of HCCO at the photodetachment wavelength of 355 nm is reported. A theoretical model for the simulation of the photodetachment process is described and the influence of various parameters is discussed. The experimental spectrum is compared with the simulation and an assignment of the spectrum is given.
