Close coupling calculations for the photodissociation cross sections of CH++hv → C+(2P) + H(2S) exhibit near threshold peaks not ascribable only to quasi-bound levels in the A 1Π potential. Our calculations demonstrate the importance of non-adiabatic transitions and thereby suggest the necessity to revise earlier predictions of the rate of radiative association of C+ with H.
