Abstract:

The partial wave analysis for Bremsstrahlung and elastic scattering by molecular nitrogen is reviewed. These studies suggest that the Bremsstrahlung in the field of molecular nitrogen can be estimated from the measured momentum transfer cross section. Using this approximation for the molecular components and recent calculations of Bremsstrahlung in the field of atomic oxygen and nitrogen, the emissivity and intensity from neutral Bremsstrahlung in high temperature air is estimated.
