The multiphoton ionization and fragmentation pathway of furan at 450nm is analyzed on the basis of statistical theory and Ladder-Switching model. Our calculation indicates that fragmentation takes plase after furan molecules absorb six photons of 450nm, C+ begins to appear after absorption of nine photons, production of C2+ ions needs absorption of at least 15 photons. Our interesting result is that C+ ions is produced by dissociation of C3H+, CH2+ and C3+ ions, not of C2+ ions. Theoretically computed relative abundance of C+/C2+ after absorption 15photons agrees well with our experimental results.
