Abstract:

The report describes research performed at Cornell University aimed at furthering the understanding of energy transfer and deactivation mechanisms in chemical and molecular lasers as well as the study of new laser systems and new chemical sources for laser systems. The methodology employed consists of laboratory experiments, data analysis including computer modeling, and literature review. Work is reported in several areas 1 Measurement of the vibrational deactivation of HFv1, CO2001 and COv1 by collisions with atoms. The atoms employed were H, F, O, N, D, Cl 2 Measurement of the rate of vibrational deactivation at low temperature of the bending mode of CO2010 by argon 3 Completion of a complete computer model for the CS2-O, CO chemical laser system 4 Study of new H atom sources for HF lasers 5 Laser double resonance studies of vibration to rotation energy transfer in HF.
