Abstract:

This report entails the work performed on modeling atom-diatom scattering processes utilizing the Impulse Approach IA. Results of the model, obtained with a computer code, have proven to be in remarkable agreement with laboratory measurements for several atom-diatom scattering systems. Two scattering systems, in particular, that were successfully modeled and compared to measurements were Ar-KBr and Ar-CsF. The IA model provided an explanation for the rapid deactivation evident in the Ar-KBr system. Experimental results in the Ar-CsF experiment that could not be explained by conventional models were also successfully modeled using the IA. Results fit the experimental observations.
