Abstract:

The gas phase reactions of certain Group IV-A metals with N2O can give rise to electronically excited metal oxide species which have been considered candidates as active molecules for electronic transition chemical lasers. The objectives of this program were to obtain experimental data on selected Group IV-A metals as they pertain to the properties of the gas phase generation and transfer and also to devise practical schemes for developing a metal vapor generator which may permit an evaluation of their potential as laser pumping sources.
