The authors previously reported a number of results from studies of IR emission from nascent oxone formed by the three body recombination O O2 M to O3 M M O2, N2. In the present program, they extended these results by looking for emission from the 101 combination band 4. 7 micrometers and by looking for evidence of the excited but bound triplet state predicted by recent theoretical efforts. They justified the assumption of either equal quantum efficiencies of excitation for nu1 and nu3 or rapid V-V coupling between them. Experimentally, emission was sought both from nu1 and nu3 vibrationrotation transitions of the excited electronic states 1-0 transitions predicted, and from the forbidden triplet to singlet electronic state transitions.
