Abstract:

The deactivation of I5 2 P12 by HBr and DBr has been shown to proceed via chemical reaction to form HI or DI Br4 2 P32. The corresponding deactivation by Br2 appears to result in the production of electronically excited Br4 2 P12 as the result of an adiabatic reaction, suggesting the possible construction of a chemically pumped bromine atom laser. The photodissociation of Br2 has also been investigated and relative intensities of transitions into the B 3 pi 0 u and 1 pi 1 u states determined. Author
