By using the direct current slice velocity map imaging technique, the polarization experiment for S(1D2) product from the ultraviolet photodissociation of carbonyl sulfide at 207 nm was studied. The angular momentum polarization character of the photofragment S(1D2) was detected via two different resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization intermediate states, 1F3 and 1P1, and four different pump-probe laser polarization geometries. The angular distribution of the corresponding CO(X1Σ+) coproducts was extracted and analyzed using the molecular-frame polarization and the laboratory-frame anisotropy models. The observed total kinetic energy release spectrum indicates that there are three dissociation channels, corresponding to the low, medium, and high kinetic energy. The sources of the low and medium kinetic energy channels are consistent with those of bimodal translational energy distribution at longer photolysis wavelengths. The high kinetic energy channel is a new dissociation channel arising from the direct dissociation from the single repulsive A(21A′) state.
