Abstract:

A sensitive LIF system was constructed, using a NdYAG plus dye laser. The signal was accumulated and analyzed by employing a Tektronix R7912 transient Digitizer and a PDP-11 minicomputer. Reactivity of HF v5 was studied. Using the same equipment, a time-delayed photoemission from a trialkali photosensitive semiconductor was observed and results are now being examined. Using 3-D trajectory calculations a new computational observable, the relative nonequilibrium distribution RNED function at the steady state was determined for the Br Ar reaction at 3500K. It is characterized by one adjustable parameter equal to 12, while the transition state theory prescribes that it should be infinitely large. RNED will be used to test and refine modern theories of reaction kinetics. Author
