Abstract:

The purpose of this research has been to determine the effect of selective electronic and vibrational excitation on energy transfer and reaction rates in simple molecular systems. The combined use of selective excitation and final state resolution has demonstrated that a broad variety of behavior is exhibited in collisions of simple chemical species. The principal results can be grouped into three sets 1 Influence of Reagent Energy on Chemical Reactions, 2 Vibrational Relaxation vs Reaction, and 3 Vibrational Relaxation in Polyatomic Systems.
