Description

The quenching of XeF(B) was studied using the steady-state photolysis of XeF/sub 2/ as the source of XeF(B). The product states from the sensitized reaction of Xe(/sup 3/P/sub 1/) with Cl/sub 2/ and COCl/sub 2/ also were studied. The new XeF(B) quenching rate constants are described. The pulsed laser induced fluorescence technique was used to measure radiative lifetimes and two-body quenching rate constant (with Ar) for the low energy Xe(6p)* states. Serious signal/noise problems for the lowest two states in the Xe(6p) manifold were encountered. A transient digitizer is on order, which should improve the signal/noise by a factor of … continued below

Description

The quenching of XeF(B) was studied using the steady-state photolysis of XeF/sub 2/ as the source of XeF(B). The product states from the sensitized reaction of Xe(/sup 3/P/sub 1/) with Cl/sub 2/ and COCl/sub 2/ also were studied. The new XeF(B) quenching rate constants are described. The pulsed laser induced fluorescence technique was used to measure radiative lifetimes and two-body quenching rate constant (with Ar) for the low energy Xe(6p)* states. Serious signal/noise problems for the lowest two states in the Xe(6p) manifold were encountered. A transient digitizer is on order, which should improve the signal/noise by a factor of 10. The Xe(6p)* work can then be completed. The radiative branching ratios of all the Ar(4p), Kr(5p) and Xe(6p) states were measured. Combining these branching ratios with the measured radiative lifetimes permits the assignment of the oscillator strengths for the Ar(4s-4p), Kr(5s-5p) and Xe(6s-6p) optical transitions. The manuscript describing the Ar(4p) work is complete (except for editing).
