Abstract:

A peak density of electronically excited free radical NFb 1 Sigma of 5.6 time 10 to the -10th power molcu.cm has been produced in a subsonic flow by means of intracavity pulsed iodine laser pumping of ground-state iodine atoms and subsequent energy transfer of this electronic energy to NF a 1 Delta free radicals. This concentration represents a 30-fold increase over previously reported steady-state concentrations and supports the promise of both NF species as potential laser candidates. Author
