Abstract:

Chemical laser experimental techniques were used to analyze features of energy partitioning and electronic branching in photochemical and bimolecular chemical reactions. Accurate population inversions were determined for two classes of reactions 1 photodissociation e.g., photodissociative excitation of cyanide radical by photolysis of CH3NC and 2 bimolecular exchange e.g., F HI yields HFvI. New lasing transitions of the cyanide radical molecular electronic laser were obtained. In addition, energy redistribution processes were examined in the cyanide radical laser system.
