Abstract
In this paper we present results from a spectroscopic and kinetic study of the reaction sequence of NCl3 + H that produces NCl(a1Δ). Using sensitive optical emission diagnostics, we have observed both NCl(a) and (b) produced by this reaction. Upon addition of HI to the flow, the reaction of H + HI produced iodine atoms that were pumped to the excited I(2P1/2) state, and we observed strong emission from the I atom 2P1/22P3/2 transition at 1.315 μm. We also used a sensitive diode laser spectrometer to probe the I atom transition and observed transfer of population from ground state (2P3/2) to the excited state (2P1/2) with a concomitant reduction in the measured absorption. We interpret this observation as an approach to optical transparency.
