Abstract:

The work done with support from this contract can be divided into three categories 1. Measurement of total quenching rate constants and branching fractions for krypton halid formation for metastable krypton atoms reacting with halogen containing molecules. 2. Construction of an apparatus which will permit the measurement of the rate constants for electronic excitation of products resulting from charge transfer reactions of He2. 3. Investigation of the applicability of the ionic-covalent curve-crossing mechanism for the formation of Br2, I2 and other excited states of molecular halogens that have been demonstrated to be candidates for U.V. lasers.
