Abstract:

Research concerning molecular and chemical lasers was conducted in the following areas 1 Measurement of vibrational energy transfer rates in the HF, DF, HF-DF, HF-CO2, and DF-CO2 systems over the temperature range 200- 350K 2 Experimental design and testing of experiments to measure vibration to rotation energy transfer in HF 3 Vibrational relaxation measurements at T 300K of HFv1 DFv1 and CO2001 by atoms including H,D,O,N,F,Cl, and Br 4 Vibrational relaxation measurements at T 300K of COv1 by atoms with initial work centering on oxygen atoms 5 Chemical laser studies in the following areas bending mode relaxation of CO2, computer model for the CS2-O2- He chemical laser alternate hydrogen sources for HF and DF lasers laser heating initiated chemical reactions CO v1-0 pulsed chemical laser C3O2 O2 He chemical CO laser model for the C32 O2 He laser laser initiated reactions in mixtures of B2H6.
