Abstract:

Infrared chemiluminescence from the process O NO M to NO2 hv M has been studied between 1.3 and 4.1 micrometers. The wavelength dependence of the continuum between 1.3 and 3.3 micrometers is in fair agreement with previous studies and the measured radiative rate constant at 1.51 micrometers establishes the NO-O glow in this spectral range as a secondary emission standard. In the region 3.3 to 4.1 micrometers, the previously- observed broad band, peaking at 3.7 micrometers, shows a complex kinetic dependence on O and M.
