Five main areas have been investigated 1 observations of the three metastable states of O2 with excitation energies between 4 and 5 eV have been made in afterglow systems, 2 a new energy transfer process has been discovered in the NO molecule 3 using the H2 laser, direct observations were made of o1D radiation at 6300 A from O2 photodissociation 4 the product channels for the quenching of O1S by O3P have been investigated and 5 quenching of O1S by the species in an oxygen-helium afterglow gives convincing evidence that the most important quenching molecule is O2, with a rate coefficient of approximately gas kinetic collision frequency.
