Photodepletion spectra of (C6H6)2+ and (C6H6)3+ are obtained from the depletion yields of the parent ions as functions of photodissociation wavelengths of 750-970 nm. The spectrum of (C6H6)2+ shows a broad and featureless band with a maximum at ≈920 nm and an (estimated) width of ≈2000 cm-1. The spectrum of (C6H6)3+ shows a similar absorption to the (C6H6)2+ band, suggesting that the (C6H6)3+ band is due to the charge resonance transition in the dimer ion subunit.
