Abstract:

Each of the experiments performed in the COCHISE facility has measured a fundamental chemical quantity such as a relative branching ratio, a quenching rate coefficient, or developed a new detection technique. These measurements are then provided for incorporation into the various atmospheric radiation codes, such as NORSE and SHARC, where they provide a solid experimental footing for modeling the complex chemical system of the upper atmosphere. The following papers provide the details of these experiments. a Branching Ratios for Infrared Vibrational Emission from NOX2PiI,v2-13 b Ro-vibrational Excitation of Carbon Monoxide by Energy Transfer from Metastable Nitrogen c Quenching of N 2D by 03P d Detection of N4S by Resonantly Enhanced Multi-photon Ionization Spectroscopy COCHISE, FACELIF, Chemiluminescence, Ro-vibrational excitation multi-photon ionization, NO, CO, N2D, 0, N4S, Quenching.
