According to the IUPAC, the photooxygenation is the incorporation of molecular oxygen into a molecular entity. In this video you will see the photooxygenation of cyclopentadiene.

Preparation of Imino Lactones by Electrophilic Cyclization of β,γ-Unsaturated Hydroxamates: Formation of 3-Cyanoprop-2-en-1-ones through Fragmentation Reactions

Houssam Trabulsi, Régis Guillot and Gérard Rousseau Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2010, 5884-5896 [PDF]

Reactions between hydroxamates and bromonium ion led not to N-alkoxy lactams but to the thermodynamically more stable imino lactones. If R1 = H and R2 =Ph, subsequent treatment with triethylamine led to (Z)-4-oxo-4-phenylbut-2-enenitrile through Beckman fragmentation.
