CF has been detected using frequency doubled dye laser radiation rather than the Raman shifted dye laser radiation reported previously. Radiative lifetime studies have not yet been completed pulsed production methods of CF have been used to show that conditions can be found under which it will be possible to measure reaction kinetics of the CF O bimolecular reaction. The pulsed Fourier transform infrared emission spectrometer is now complete and is undergoing tests. A dedicated fast transient digitiser is being built and the interface to a micrometer is complete this will enable us to take time resolved interferograms of the emission and transform these to obtain time resolved spectra of the ir active components. A graduate student is working full time on this project.
