Reactions of Germanium Vapor with Oxidizers: Photon Yields and a New GeO Band System
AEROSPACE CORP EL SEGUNDO CA AEROPHYSICS LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
Germanium was reacted with N2O, O2, NO2, and NO in a flow system, which produced GeO. Chemiluminescence was observed from three electronic band systems of GeO Vibrational constants and T sub e values have been obtained. Photon yields for each of the three GeO band systems were measured to be small 0.1 in all cases and to be strongly pressure dependent in the 0.5 to 20 Torr region. Reaction of Ge vapor with F2 produced GeF chemiluminescence with a measured photon yield of .00068 the flames from Ge Br2 and Ge Cl2 were too weak to measure.
