From wiki on photodissociation:
Photodissociation, photolysis, or photodecomposition is a chemical reaction in which a chemical compound is broken down by photons.

There appears to be three processes, dissociation, lysis and decomposition, to which light can be added (photo) to break chemicals. (I'm neither chemist nor wordsmith so:) How do they differ and why the surfeit of terminology here? :ask:
