Abstract:

Two major areas of investigation were comprehended by this research program. The first was an investigation of vibrational relaxation properties of small polyatomic molecules, primarily by the techniques of infrared-infrared and infrared-microwave double resonance spectroscopy. At a later stage, the emphasis was shifted to deactivation processes involving electronically excited states of small molecules having potential applications to visible chemical laser systems. Results are summarized. A report on saturation of infrared absorption in PFS, BCls, and propynal is included.
