Abstract:

Time-resolved, infraredmillimeter wave double resonance IRMMWDR techniques have been used to investigate rotational and vibrational state changing collisions in molecules. Studies of several isotopic species of CH3CL and CH3F have led to a relatively simple model of the collisional energy transfer processes which accounts for an extremely large and diverse set of data. More specifically, about 350 IRMMWDR time-resolved data sets can be well predicted by a model with uses only five parameters for the rotational energy kinetics. Further, these five parameters are related to well known physical parameters. Submillimeter waves, Far-infrared lasers, CW and transient multiresonance, Molecular energy transfer.
