Abstract:

Experimental kinetic measurements were made for mercury and mercury halide systems that have relevance for mercury halide lasers operating on the B-X transitions. The quenching of Hg3P2 atoms by halogens, the vibrational relaxation of HgClB and HgBrB, and the dissociative excitation transfer from N2A and Xe3P2,1 to HgCl2, HgBr2, CH3HgCl, CH3HgBr and CH3HgI were studied. In addition, relaxation processes in the triplet states of N2 were investigated the very facile coupling between the N2W and N2B and N2B states was discovered and studied at the state-to-state level.
