Abstract:

Fluorescence behavior of NO2 in the first predissociation region 3979 to 4200 A was studied in great detail with fluorescence excitation spectroscopy and the phase-shift technique for the lifetimes measurement. The predissociation limit is determined to be about 3980 A. A fluorescing species with a constant intrinsic lifetime of about 7 x .00007 sec and a predissociating species with a very short lifetime 10 to the minus 7 power sec are found. Author
