Abstract:

Fortunately, a parallel research investigation on collosional relaxation of highly excited hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride, formerly supported by the Advanced Research Projects administration, and a great scientific research and development interest to AFOSR was able to be continued with modest support from this contract and has provided valuable information on relaxation rate measurements for HC1 v 1 to 7 colliding with a large number of other molecules and some preliminary rate measurements for HF v 1 to 7. The present report will therefore be subdivided into two sections dealing with these two topics, but it must be kept in mind that this is essentially a progress report covering the initial 14-months building up period of a major project.
