Abstract:

The report presents the results of research concerning molecular and chemical lasers. The topics include Measurement of V to V and V to R,T rates among hydrogen halide molecules and the temperature dependence of the energy transfer rates previously determined for HF, DF, HFCO2 DFCO2 systems Studies on rapid subsonic gas mixing with emphasis on turbulence to enhance rapid mixing Vibrational relaxation studies of CO2 in the pressure range 1-100 atm. TES HBr chemical laser studies EPR study of reaction rates in the NO F2 dissociative reaction Chemical laser studies of the reaction of atomic oxygen and acetylene including the determination of V to V energy transfer probabilities Studies of the partition of exothermicity in the CS2-O2 chemical laser system and Experimental study of the relaxation of CO2020 and HFv 1 by collisions with H and F atoms.
