Abstract
The visible and near infrared spectra of cavity chemiluminescence of a combustion driven HF laser fueled by NF3 were collected and analyzed. The spectral line at 529 nm for the green chemiluminescence was attributed to electronic excited NF molecules in b1∑ state, i.e. NF(b). The diffuse bands from 570 nm to 700 nm were attributed to the N2(B-A) emission. The spectral lines from 850 nm to 1000 nm were attributed to the HF Δυ = 3 emission bands. At the end of every experiment, the spectral line at 874 nm would be observed, which was attributed to the electronic excited NF molecules in a1 Δ state, i.e. NF(a). The NF(a-X) emission was found experimentally to be always avoiding the HFΔυ = 3 emission bands. It was also found experimentally that the NF(b-X) emission always accompanied the HF Δυ = 3 emission bands and their emission intensities had the same trends as a function of experimental time. Whereas the NF(a) molecules was produced in the optical cavity directly by the reaction of H atoms with NF2 molecules in the incomplete combustion effluents, the NF(b) molecules were suggested to be produced mainly by the near resonant energy transfer from vibrational excited HF(v<=2) molecules to NF(a) molecules. In other words, the vibrational excited state HF(v<=2) molecules can be efficiently deactivated by the NF(a) molecules by near resonant V-E energy transfer process. Therefore we concluded that incomplete dissociation of NF3 might be harmful to the HF(v<=2) population.
