We have extended the surface-crossing classical trajectory study of collision-induced predissociation in I*2 from one to three dimensions, and found good agreement with experiment using a single-branch model. Also, an optical model trajectory study was carried out for the same system on a single effective potential surface. This model allows one to systematically vary the coupling coefficient to achieve the best fit with experimental results, based on one set of trajectories instead of running a set of trajectories for each value of this parameter.
