9 November 1978 Laser Studies Of Atom-Molecule Reactions
Author Affiliations +
Several examples are presented of the laser photolysis/infrared fluorescence technique for measuring atom-molecule reaction rates. Atom production is achieved by multiphoton dissociation using a TEA CO2 laser or by direct dissociation using a dye laser, its harmonic, or a uv excimer laser. Reactions of ground state H and F atoms as well as of excited 1(52P-1/2) atoms are illustrated. The information provided by these studies is useful for the prediction and modeling of chemical lasers.
