Abstract:

Overtone vibration-laser double resonance measurements have provided new data on vibrational and rotational relaxation in HFv 2. These experiments determine the magnitudes of the total vibrational relaxation rate constants for HFv 1 and 2 as well as their temperature dependences. Rotational relaxation data come from these measurements as well. The temporal evolution of individual rotational states observed in the double resonance studies provides level-to-level energy transfer rate constants when analyzed using an iterative fitting scheme which incorporates scaling relations among the rate constants.
