Abstract:

Rate coefficients for electron impact excitations of H2 states relevant to vacuum UV lasers are calculated using calculated or measured dissociation cross sections. In addition, ionization and ground state vibrational excitation rate coefficients are calculated, as well as the rates of energy loss in inelastic electron-molecule collision processes in H2. These rate coefficients are essential to calculations of laser power densities and design considerations. These rates are also needed for calculations of H2 laser produced plasmas essential to controlled fusion problems. Author
